In the week after Christmas, people in Finland take it easy, saving up their energy for the big New Year’s celebration.

Nobel Peace Prize winner Martti Ahtisaari helps achieve a truce between the Angry Birds and the Bad Piggies (see video).
Books are close to the Finns’ hearts. On average, every Finn buys four books and borrows a dozen from the library each year.
