Finnish Candle Holder

Relationship: Child of im/migrant

My object is a Reindeer candleholder. My object is the shape of a reindeer. It is used to hold six candles. With the candles this provides light. This object is from Lapland, Finland bordering Sweden, Norway, Russia and the Baltic Sea. This object was from my mother’s brother. My object is special to my family because in Lapland,Finland Reindeer are well known. It’s also special because this item was given to my parents as a wedding gift in Finland. Also this reminds me of Lapland and my mother’s brother. This is special because when it’s lit it makes us think of all the memories we have in Finland. What someone can learn about my culture/country with my object is Lapland, Finland is well known for reindeer if you live there you will most likely see a reindeer. You can also learn that Lapland is well known for reindeer because that is where a Santa lives and they have a Santa Claus village.
