A Speaking Polar Bear in Finland

 

It is not very usual, that people meet bears in Finland on the streets. This bear was a funny Polar bear since it spoke Finnish and English. He wanted to have ”food”, and there were some elves and others, who brought him food. They had come e.g. from Sweden, Norway, Esthonia, India and Israel to tell for their start-up enterprises.

Suomessa saattaa törmätä ainakin puhuvaan jääkarhuun. Tämä tuli vastaan Oulussa, kaukana Jäämeren rannalla, jossa se tarkenee hyvin. Se kai oli kulkenut Tromssan kautta Pohjolan valkeaan kaupunkiin juuri tähän kansainväliseen tilaisuuteen. Ranuan villieläinpuistossa on kyllä ihan oikeita jääkarhuja.

This is a tradition especially in Oulu area. Boys make teams of four and start rehearsals for presentations before Christmas. They tell the ”Tiernapojat” story by singing and speaking. It goes always in the same way and people are watching that and giving them some money for good singing and remembering all the words.
