Airing national costumes / Aireando trajes nacionales / Aération de costumes nationaux / Arejamento das trajes nacionais

In English:

My photos are from Mikkeli on the airing day of national costumes. The airing day may sound odd, but on this special day, it is customary to take the national costumes out of the closet and to ventilate them. What is the best of all this, is to ventilate them together with other people who have one. National costumes and folkdances belong together.

In Finland, there are 400 different national costumes. Many make them themselves, but to make it is not a piece of cake, because it can last a couple of years. Many national costumes are inherited in the family. Some examples when to wear national costumes: wedding, in different festivities, in folk dancing groups, in many parties like family, local historic events etc. If man do not have national costume for some special event, it is possible to rent it.

At the end of this post, I give some links to show how in Penedo, Brazil, which is called “Little Finland”, our traditions are maintained strongly outside Finland. So, if You do not have time to visit Finland, but You are interested in Finnish National costumes and to see how Finns and Brazilians together dance Finnish folk dances wearing Finnish national dresses on Saturdays on the Club, then visit Penedo. Penedo is an utopian colony in Brazil and it was founded in 1929. Nowadays it is tourist attraction in Brazil. Penedo is close to Rio de Janeiro, distance is only 170 km / 105.6 mi. Think – tropics and Finnish culture! Ever been in Sauna? In Penedo, it is possible. Santa Claus has summer home there. Penedo means rock in English.

En español:

Mis fotos son de Mikkeli en el día de ventilar trajes nacionales. El día aireación puede sonar extraño, pero en este día especial se acostumbra a tomar los trajes nacionales fuera del armario y ventilar ellos. ¿Cuál es el mejor de todo es ventilar ellos, junto con otras personas que tienen una. Los trajes nacionales y danzas folclóricas pertenecen juntos.

En Finlandia, hay 400 trajes nacionales diferentes. Muchos de ellos hacen a sí mismos, pero para hacerlo ¡no está chupao!, ya que puede durar un par de años. Muchos trajes nacionales se heredan en la familia. Algunos ejemplos de cuándo usar los trajes nacionales: la boda, en diferentes festividades, en grupos de danza folclórica, en muchas fiestas, como familia, eventos históricos locales, etc. Si el hombre no tiene su propio traje nacional para algún evento especial, es posible alquilarlo.

Al final de este post, voy a dar algunos enlaces para mostrar cómo en Penedo, Brasil, que se llama “Pequeña Finlandia”, nuestras tradiciones se mantienen firmemente fuera de Finlandia. Así pues, si vos no tiene tiempo para visitar Finlandia, pero vos está interesado en trajes nacionales finlandeses y ver cómo los finlandeses y los brasileños juntos bailan danzas folklóricas finlandesas con trajes nacionales finlandeses los sábados en el Club, entonces, visite Penedo. Penedo es una colonia utópica en Brasil y fue fundada en 1929. Hoy en día es la atracción turística en Brasil. Penedo está cerca de Río de Janeiro, la distancia es sólo 170 km / 105,6 mi. Piense – el trópico y la cultura finlandesa! Has estado alguna vez en sauna? En Penedo, es posible. Papá Noel tiene su casa de verano allí. Penedo significa roca en español.

En francais:

Mes photos sont de Mikkeli au jour de aération de costumes nationaux. Le jour de aération peut sembler étrange, mais en ce jour spécial il est coutume de prendre les costumes nationaux sortir du placard et de les aérer. Quel est le meilleur de tout cela, est de les aérer avec d’autres personnes qui ont un.Ccostumes nationaux et danses folkloriques appartiennent ensemble.

En Finlande, il y a 400 costumes nationaux différents. Beaucoup font eux-mêmes, mais pour que c’est pas du billard, car le travaille peut durer une couple d’années. Beaucoup de costumes nationaux sont héritées dans la famille. Quelques exemples quand porter des costumes nationaux: de mariage, dans différentes festivités, des groupes de danse folklorique, dans de nombreux partis comme la famille, les événements historiques locaux, etc. Si l’homme ne possède pas costume national pour un événement spécial, il est possible de le louer.

À la fin de ce poste, je vous donne quelques liens pour montrer comment, dans Penedo, le Brésil, qui est surnommée “la petite Finlande”, nos traditions sont maintenues fermement dehors de la Finlande. Donc, si vous ne possédez pas le temps de visiter la Finlande, mais vous êtes intéressés en costumes nationaux finlandais et de voir comment les Finlandais et les Brésiliens dansent ensemble danses folkloriques finlandais portant robes nationales finlandaises le samedi sur le Club, puis visite de Penedo. Penedo est une colonie utopique au Brésil et elle a été fondée en 1929. Aujourd’hui, Penedo est une attraction touristique au Brésil. Penedo est proche de Rio de Janeiro, la distance est seulement 170 km / 105,6 mi. Pensez – tropiques et la culture finlandaise! Jamais été dans Sauna? Dans Penedo, il est possible. Père Noël a son maison d’été lá. Penedo signifie le roc en francais.

Em Português:

Oi gente, tudo bem com vocês?

As minhas fotos são de Mikkeli no dia arejamento das trajes nacionais. O dia arejamento pode soar estranho, mas neste dia especial, é costume levar os trajes nacionais para fora do armário e para ventilá-os. Qual é o melhor de tudo isso, é que para ventilá-los, juntos com outras pessoas que têm um. Trajes nacionais e folkdances pertencem juntos.

Na Finlândia, existem 400 trajes nacionais diferentes. Muitos fazem os próprios trajes eles mismos, mas isso não é canja, porque pode durar um par de anos. Muitos trajes nacionais são herdadas da família. Alguns exemplos quando vestir trajes nacionais: do casamento, em diferentes festividades, em grupos folclóricos, em muitos partidos como família, eventos históricos locais etc. Se o homem não tem traje nacional por algum evento especial, é possível alugá-lo.

No final deste post, eu dou algumas ligações para mostrar como em Penedo, Brasil, que é chamado de “Pequena Finlândia”, nossas tradições são mantidas fortemente fora da Finlândia. Então, se você não tem tempo para visitar a Finlândia, mas você está interessado em trajes nacionais finlandesas e para ver como os finlandeses e brasileiros juntos dançam danças folclóricas finlandeses usando vestidos nacionais finlandesas aos sábados no clube, então visite Penedo. Penedo é uma colônia utópica no Brasil e foi fundada em 1929. Hoje em dia é uma atração turística no Brasil. Penedo está perto de Rio de Janeiro, a distância é só 170 km / 105,6 mi.
Pense – trópicos e a cultura finlandesa! Já você esteve em Sauna? Em Penedo, é possível. Papai Noel tem casa de verão lá.

  6. Hi! Lovely photos. I never knew that Finns still used national costumes, even in special occasions. I never saw it being worn while I was living in Finland.. I had thought that only Sami people have their traditional costumes.
    The clothes are really beautiful and the day looks lovely too! Is it recent?🙂

      Thank You. Not so many opportunities. Most general events to use them are wedding, in different festivities, in folk dancing groups, in many parties like family, local historic events. Generally, man can see them in midsummer festivals.

  24. National costumes or traditional dress are always so interesting to see, and the Brazil/Finland connection is especially intriguing! In some parts of Mexico (many areas of Oaxaca where we live 6 months of the year) people continue to wear their traditional dress daily. Thanks for a colorful post!

      I am glad that You loved my post. Little Finland in Penedo is awesome place in Brazil. There were many videos among those Portuguese links. Many Brazilians come from Rio de Janeiro to spend weekend at the area and they know Sauna because every hotel has one. We could turn the thing upside down and say that every summer in June we have “Little Brazil” in Helsinki, because then there is:

  34. Love it! My mother was a folk dancer — learning dances from all over the world and making the costumes, including embroidering, crocheting, as well as sewing.

  35. Moi!
    How wonderful!
    I could feel that national costumes are living also now.
    I want to wear Finnish national costume.
    Do you know “kimono” that is Japanese traditional clothes?
    I don’t have “kimono”, because they are very expensive, and very difficult to wear for me. Ha ha.
    I think that traditional clothes are very beautiful in every country.
    Kiitos.

  36. Pra comecar, eu nem sabia que existia uma colonia finlandesa no Brasil. Eu sei de varios lugares assim no sul, como Pomerode – uma colonia alema, mas finlandes, passou batido nas minhas aulas de historia. Parece ser uma festa muito bonita.🙂

    • Oi Cmila.

      Obrigado você por ter visitado meu blog. Tudo o que você disse é muito interessante. A colônia finlandesa é bastante antiga, já desde 1929! Tenho visto, eu acho, uma colônia alemã no caminho de Penedo para Angra dos Reis, que é uma bela cidade de praia com suas 365 ilhas.

      Tenha um dia maravilhoso!

  44. This is lovely Sartenda, thank you so much for sharing it with me and bringing it to my attention. I’ve never visited South America but would like to do so one day. My son shared a house with a boy from Brazil and another from Colombia whilst a student and I met them both and they were charming!

    • Hello Little Miss Traveller.

      I am glad that You loved my hint. Remember to tell to me, when You have visited there and especially on Saturday, that I can add the link of Your post to my page. South Americans are charming and friendly. They know how to enjoy life although being poor. Music is life for them. When I learned Portuguese on two winter courses, my teacher was a young Brazilian Lady. She was the best one I have had, although she did was officially educated to teach.

      I have visited in six countries in South America. My personal countries are situated on the Western coastline, due to the Cumbia music, which happy tropical music and less known.

      Thank You commenting.
