Of summer and the Weekly Wrapup

Somewhere in between it was June all of a sudden. In Finnish June is kesäkuu, which many people think comes from the Finnish word meaning summer, kesä. It actually is derived from a word for kesanto, a sort of ley farming where a field is left not planted for a year or longer.

However around here the summer is usually thought to start from the beginning of June. In the end of May or beginning the June the schools go out for summer and the kids and their teachers are set free. More or less.

During the short summer there's lots of light here in North. Norther you go, the less there's night time. Way up North the sun won't go down at all. It's a nice change to the long and dark winter. No matter if sleeping in all the light can be tricky business.

Did you miss these during the last week? (eg. Weekly Wrapup)

Suomeksi (In Finnish): 

Jossakin siinä välillä tuli kesäkuu. Toisin kuin usein luullaan, sana kesäkuu ei tule vuodenaikaa, vaan kesantoa tarkoittavasta sanasta. Joka tapauksessa kesäkuu koetaan yleensä kesän aluksi. Koulujen kesälomat alkavat ja lapset ja opettajat päästetään vapaaksi. Enemmän tai vähemmän. Lyhyen kesän aikana täällä pohjoisessa on paljon valoa. Pohjoisempaan menet, enemmän sitä riittää. Se on ihan mukavaa, pitkän ja pimeän talven jälkeen, vaikka nukkuminen valossa onkin taitolajinsa. Katso myös tuosta yläpuolelta mitä missasit viime viikon aikana. Etkö halua missata enää mitään?
