Finland: Moomins in Winter

Today I got a postcard from Finland.

It shows Snorkmaiden and other characters from Tove Jansson's Moomin books in a wintry landscape. Snorkmaiden first appeared in Comet in Moominland. She is a friend of Moomintroll. She is a Snork, a species from the Moomin books, and is able to change her colour according to her mood.

The card was sent from the Postcrossing Meet-up in Järvenpää.
With a special stamp:
Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät (issued 11-05-2015)
Pertti Kurikan Nimipäivät is a Finish punk-rock band. The four members formed the band in 2009 in a charity workshop for adults with developmental disabilities. The band represented Finland at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna in 2015.

Thank You very much Sini!
