Suomenlinna 5

Canons on Suomenlinna and the last shot of Suomenlinna.
Today was also the last day of official Christmas celebrations in Finland. This day here is called Loppiainen and people take down their Christmas trees. It is a holiday here but it didn't make a difference today as it is a Sunday. In Singapore when a holiday falls on Sunday we get the following Monday off. Is it like that elsewhere? Is this day observed elsewhere?
Loppiainen in English means Epiphany but it seems like it means different things in different places. Read more about it in wikipedia.
