"In Karelia there was an ancient belief in the Sielulintu or Soul bird. It was believed the Sielulintu protected a person's soul at its most vulnerable when dreaming. It was tradition to keep a carved wooden bird by the bedside to keep the soul safe during sleep. Use this bird as a symbol of good luck, protection and happiness. To a happy soul!"

How the Nordics say Sweden - Poor Tino! But it's not his fault - Finnish as a language is completely unrelated to the others. Swedish, Norwegian, Danish, and Icelandic are all Germanic languages (part of the Indo-European family of languages), whereas Finnish is a Finno-Ugric language (part of the Uralic family of languages, which also includes Estonian and Hungarian).

"Sisu is a Finnish term loosely translated into English as strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. However, the word is widely considered to lack a proper translation into any language. Sisu is defined by a long-term element in it; it is not momentary courage, but the ability to sustain an action against the odds. Deciding on a course of action and then sticking to that decision against repeated failures is sisu"

SISU > from the Finnish -- "ultimate determination, fortitude, and persistence, carried to an unfathomable level.
