  • Celebrated since the 1800s, crayfish parties are arranged in the late summer, a tradition as well stablished as the Christmas and Midsummer celebrations. Typically, paper lanterns light up the darkness as crayfish, cooked in a broth of salted water with spices and an abundance of dill flowers, are served, often with a buffet-style serving of pies, cheeses and bread. Aquavit and drinking songs are other popular accessories. The postage paid symbols on the address side of the cards relate to the picture side motifs; postage is thus included in the price of the cards that can be posted as such from Åland to any destination in the world.
