Emoji: Out of office

Back to the basics. In Finland we have this saying ‘to put your brain in the cloakroom’. And that’s what we do in the summertime every Friday after work and in July, when the whole of Finland is out of office. If you try to reach a Finnish person in July, prepare for a voice mail message saying”the person you are calling, has gone fishing”. Almost every tenth Finn has their own summer cottage as there are over 500 000 summer cottages in Finland.

This emoji shows a landscape with blue skies and water, a red cottage and a pier. There’s a boat in the water; a person’s legs and a fishing rod are dangling from the boat.
