When the Bear Rolls over?

“Heikinpaiva” It means when the bear rolls over in the den. What it really means is that the bear is snoozing in his den, half-asleep,suddenly senses that the winter is half over.Time to roll over on the other side. Winter has passed very quickly it seems this year? The Heikinpaiva festival was in Hancock Michigan last weekend. A Finnish festival with all sorts of events. I saw the comment when the Bear rolls over in a Upper Michigan newspaper and thought that is a nice comment for winter half over. Happy for some and sad for others that want snow for skiing.
