Tikkutiistai - Holy Tuesday

 Easter decorations in Finland show lots of colored eggs and yellow flowers. Colourful flowers, like tulips, daffodils and carnations, are popular at Easter time. Bright colours like yellow and green and all things reminding of spring, sun and new life are popular Easter items also here in Finland, even though it is usually still very wintry outside, with snow covering the ground in many parts of the country. 
Some Finnish families sow grass in small pots before Easter, and put eggs in them when the grass has grown. To decorate the homes, bare twigs of birch and willow trees are brought in well ahead of Easter. The twigs may be decorated with colourful feathers and other Easter ornaments.
