Happy New Year!

It is time to wish everyone Happy New Year 2007! The change of the year was celebrated in Finland traditionally. In Helsinki, the city had organized an event in the famous senate square. The magic of the midnight moments was created by Sibelius' beautiful violin concerto and magnificient fireworks.

The large crowd of celebrating people was welcomed by the Lord Mayor of Helsinki, Jussi Pajunen. He expressed the fact that Finland has reached its most prosperous state in its history and reminded that the social responsibility to take care of those who have difficulties in their life always exists. He also warmly welcomed all those who move to Finland from abroad and reminded that they need to be welcomed by all who live here.
