Odds and Ends
There once was a time

I really doubt deep down inside that any of the two nations hate eachother, more likely the other way around. There are countless finnish people living in sweden (not only fenno-swedes) and I can guarantee you there is plenty of swedes living in finland, aswell. During the second world war my grandmother (along with countless other finnish children) was shipped to sweden to escape the war. My grandmother may have passed away, but she ensured that there is a little bit of finnish inside of me.
Do a walkabout in sweden and ask people if they have any relations to finland and you'd be surprised over the amount of people who has a finnish parent/grandparent.
