Together with Aalto University, Forenom, Learnia and Small Folks, ONNIVATORS invite families with children (and all young-minded adults who have a sweet tooth for Easter eggs, too!) to Design Factory to prepare for traditional Finnish Easter activities. We decorate willow twigs, enjoy snacks and rehearse the rhyme children chant when whisking willows at neighbors’ doors on Palm Sunday.

The Finnish version of ‘Trick or Treat’ goes like this:

‘Virvon varvon, tuoreeks terveeks, tulevaks vuodeks, vitsa sulle, palkka mulle.’


A free translation of the rhyme is; ‘With this twig I wish you blessings and good health for next year. You get the twig, I get a treat.’
