ST.URHO DAY, MAR.16 is a NATIONAL HOLIDAY for FINN,s in U.S.A.. ST.URHO became our Saint for driving the grasshoppers out of FINLAND! Thus saving the grape vineyards. We wear green and purple to honor the day! This desert I baked using green apples & cranberries,is to honor the day! Traditionally a St URHO feast is a fish,pie,chowder or soup. O.K. We all know grapes do not grow in Finland. LOL- Could it be that they wanted to get a head start ST PATTY"S DAY!YES,Finn's do have a great sense of humor. On the 17th..I can take off the purple,for ST.PATTY'S DAY and the wearing of the GREEN
