Eino Leino Day

It is the day of poems and summer in Finland, or Eino Leino day, after the Finnish poet Eino Leino, who was born this day in 1878.

If Finland would not have ceased to be a part of Sweden in 1809, perhaps we would have celebrated this day here too. Poems can be exciting and invigorating. Summer is warm and nice. I believe it would be nice to have a day for summer and poetry in Sweden as well as in Finland. Perhaps we can import the celebrations?
