Just the usual quick reminder that a public holiday is coming up.
This time it is All Saints' Day, although there may be some of you who wonder why that was not on November 1st, seeing as how Halloween is supposed to be the 31st of October, and today is already (at least for the British non-Roman Catholics) the 5th of November and Guy Fawkes' Day.
It's all connected with the Finnish habit of celebrating some religious festivals on "the closest Saturday", which happens in this case to be tomorrow.
The long and the short of it is that the shops will not be open as usual on Saturday, and most public transport will be operating a Sunday schedule.
We have linked certain transport services below, and also the Helsingin Sanomat quick guide to the subject of All Saints and what will NOT be happening.
If you have any doubts, get a Finnish-speaking friend to explain the details for you.
Basically everything works as normal today (Friday), and the shops will be open from 12:00-18:00 on Sunday.
Some smaller shops may even be open longer hours.
And the food stores in the tunnel under Helsinki's Central Railway Station and in the Kamppi Center will be open from 10-22 on both Saturday and Sunday.
