Himmel (Finland) old Christmas ornament. In the olden days, himmeli decorations were made and then hung above the dinner table to ensure that the coming rye crop would be plentiful. Himmeli are made in many different shapes and sizes but the bigger the decoration, the larger and more successful, the rye crop would be.

Apparently Finland has a traditional mobile for the holidayhs: Himmeli mobile, traditional Finnish Christmas decorations

Juustoleipa - Juustoleipä, also known as Leipäjuusto, originally comes from Southern Ostrobothnia, Northern Finland and Kainuu. It is known in English as 'Finnish squeaky cheese'. Other dialects have various names such as narskujuusto that depict the way that fresh leipäjuusto "squeaks" against the teeth when bitten. Among all its synonyms, leipäjuusto is the more commonly known name.

Finnish squeaky cheese, fry in a pan with cream and sugar and eat with cloudberry jam, yummy :)
