Yet another seasonal Finnish tradition is crab feast in August. You can buy the crabs or go catching them yourself. The party is thick with its own rituals, from special drinking songs to the way the tables are decorated with dill and napkins, bibs and cutlery. The crabs are cooked in salt water and then eaten cooled as they are, or on toast with butter and dill. But the most important spice is to gather a big bunch of friends and make a night out of it!
