Take the day off, sit around in your purple underwear and have some Fish Soup and Flatbread. Wave your Finnish Flag!
This is the famous day that the great St. Urho chased the evil grasshoppers out of Finland and the grapes were saved!
We missed the big parade that was held last Saturday..we had ice and then snow covered roads and blizzard warnings..so we stayed home.
The evil grasshoppers being escorted out of Menahga last year!
Now for the St. Urho’s Day Poem
Ooksie kooksie kollme vee
Santia Urho is the boy for me
He chase out the hopper as big as pirds
Never before have I heard those words
He really told those bugs of green
Bravest Finn I ever seen
Some celebrate for St. Pat and his snake
But that Urho boy got what it takes
He got tall and strong on feelia sour
And ate Kalla Mojakkaa every hour
Thats why that guy dould chase those beetles
That crew as thick as jack pine needles
So let's give a cheer
in our very best way
On the sixteenth of March
St. Urho's Day!
Chance and the legendary St Urho!
