Graduation ceremony? Why not!

Yesterday I had an opportunity to join the graduation ceremony of Mephi nuclear power Specialists here in Obninsk Russia. It was a very touching  one hour session with national anthem, speeches, music and the ceremony itself.

Why in Finland our ceremony is only a one second session when the certificate is handed? Or not even that. The diploma may come via mail to one’s mailbox.

Why we are so primitive with these kind of things? Sometimes the Finnish rational way of living kills emotional parts of life.

Is there anything we could do?
