We are now one week away from the Finno-Urgic Trio Week! Like for DenEst week, we are starting it one hour before Sunday EDT! This means we are starting Saturday September 16th at 11 PM EDT (Sunday Sept 17th at 4 AM GMT)!
Personally changing some of how this works. So here are the days with the full prompts so those who need it can start early!
Sept 17th: Springs, Saunas, and Spas Sunday
Relaxing is good for the soul, and these three love relaxing steam and water. Hungary is home to more than 1000 hot springs, and Estonia and Finland love their Saunas. All wonderful places to treat yourself to a spa day. Let’s have them bond while relaxing.
Sept 18th: Metal Music Monday
Finland is a metalhead. It’s not hard picturing Hungary as one as well. And Estonia still has a strong metal scene too. Why not have them bonding over metal music or maybe making it as well? Or if metal is not for you, how about folk music or pop or Eurovision? It is a day to bond over music.
Tiny Terrors Tuesday
OK, Finland wasn’t so much of a tiny terror. However
Magyars and Osealians show that Hungary and Estonia were very much terrors of their own childhoods. Maybe Estonia even dragging along his life long Finnish friend along for the ride? It’s time for some fearsome children! Or maybe some history bonding. You can throw a certain “awesome” person in there for some good old the enemy of my enemy is my friend for Estonia and Hungary.
Whatchu Say? Wednesday
While related, these languages aren’t really mutually intelligible. Estonia and Finland have words that are false friends all over the place. And then Hungarian got influences from entirely different countries. Time to miscommunication! OR maybe bond over the few words they do all share.
This one is @kruspolska for the suggestion. There are one three countries whose official language is Finno-Ugric after all. Exclusive. You probably never heard of it before. Time to make this trio the Hipster Trio.
Fight Night Friday
On the same line as Tiny Terrors Tuesday, but let’s throw in some Finnish snipers and some good, old, crazy competitions. Whether they are bonding by history or by competition is yours to decide!
Surprise Me Saturday
This is a day to do what you want! Or maybe you want the trio to surprise each other with history or traits or a party! It’s a time to surprise someone!
