Getting Päntsdrunk w/ Elmer T. Lee and me...

Post by Thunder1 » August 4th 2018, 4:44pm

Well, the wife is spending the evening at a sister's house..so, figuring the Finns know a thing or two about drinking, I'm going to enjoy the last couple of hours of sunshine today floating around on my pool w/ some Elmer to keep me company..

Embracing päntsdrunk, the Finnish way of drinking alone in your underwear
To Americans, drinking alone can sound, well, lonely, but the Finns see a solitary drink at home in your skivvies as a form of self-care.

Were the wicked queen from Snow White to turn to her magic mirror and ask, "Who is the happiest of them all?" it's not a stretch to imagine that the mirror would flash on a Nordic person eating cloudberries in a sauna. Scandinavia, though surely not without its problems, just seems to get so much right. Every year one of these Northern European countries tops the World Happiness Report (this year Finland cruised in at #1), driving our outsider's fascination with lifestyle trends like hygge and lagom, along with the Nordic diet in general — and now, kalsarikännit, aka päntsdrunk.
The name says it all, or most of it, anyway; päntsdrunk means to drink an alcoholic beverage in your pants — specifically your underpants, and it's picking up interest in the U.S. There's even a new book out called "Päntsdrunk: Kalsarikanni: The Finnish Path to Relaxation" by Miska Rantanen, indicating that this seemingly self-explanatory term is packed with heritage and nuances, and is rooted in a distinctly Finnish way of interacting with the world and one’s self.
