The transition from winter to spring is a slow and painful process in Finland. Here it happens almost in one night (at least if the temperatures are compared to Finland, let alone the non-existent snow and ice). Time passes fast, people work and commute fast, they eat and sleep fast. Love and death in a blink of an eye. Sit down for a moment and see how fast the world spins around, like a merry-go-round. For the vacation people try to stop the spinning but can't and as if being commanded by someone they try really, really hard to enjoy the short time given... and as fast as they can.
The city has a burn out, but fights fire with fire.
