Of course, there was sauna!
But we also fired up one of the little mökki camp fire huts (ideal for when it is -30 C and paffing-it-down with snow). A perfect way to carry on the celebrations.

There, we all sat around the hearth, exchanging stories, sipping wines and beer and grilling sausages.

It just wouldn't be right unless we had sausages.

The party went on until just after 4 am. Of course, in the meantime, we hiked up a mountain, went swimming in the lake and all the other things too... but that can wait for another time.
