Halloween appropriation 9 10, 2:21pm


Just curious about the topic. It kind of feels strange to talk about protecting our culture... What is our culture now but a result of influence by other cultures (swedish, russian... some german etc).

I assume most finns think christianity for example belongs to our culture, and one could say it does these days. It has been here for what... some 800 eyars or so? We all know (or at least should know) where it originates from and that it was introduced to us by swedes, if they wouldnt have done so we would probably be mostly orthodox christians and thanking our eastern neighbour for that. And in present day a lot of people would like to see christianity as our familiar own thing while looking at islam like an intruding force.

So in case you would be FOR protecting our culture, would you include christianity and christian values in it?
