I'd say the dark season in the winterns, high use of alcohol and culture that admires mental strenght and successing. I'd say that many Finn thinks that they should win through everything by themselves, without any help of other people. It's often very difficult to speak out about personal challenges and problems in such culture that admires mental strenght. This is just my opinion.

Finding a job is one of the tough ones. Due the taxes and insurances and other mandatory employer payments it is very expensive to hire people in Finland.
