tere tali kalevi lehelt

This year, 212 year-old Kalev kondiitri/tööstus/ettevõtte (confectionary company's) advendi/ kalender, seen here, and in fact its entire Christmas collection for kids, uses funny word play. Photo: kalev.eu

 

Tere you know, tali is the same thing as talv – winter. But put together, they form a word pair used (mostly verbally) to express dissatisfaction or an unpleasant surprise similarly to: "Imagine that!" or "Hello!" (As in: you've got to be kidding).

Concert of Estonian Music: “Voices Over Tallinn – Celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Estonian Independence” (1918-2018) on Friday, November 30 at 8:00pm.

The Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VoC) held its annual Triumph of Liberty Conference and Gala Dinner on November 14th. The event takes place each year to remember the victims of communism in Central and Eastern Europe, and worldwide, while encouraging commitment to confronting today’s revisionist powers and defending the right of all people to live in freedom.

Earlier this autumn, the Estonian World Council (ÜEKN) submitted an appeal to the Riigikogu seeking to have 19 September officially declared a Day of Remembrance to mark the mass exodus of Estonians fleeing occupying powers in 1944. The Constitutional Committee of the Riigikogu, however, wants to leave the decision up to the next Riigikogu, which will enter office following the 2019 general election next March. 

Welcoming Remarks Delivered During Baltic Unity Day at Priedaine (Latvian Club) in Freehold, NJ on October 13, 2018.

 

Greetings fellow Balts and Baltic-Americans. We, as humans, often package things into groups of three, or we find them in nature and faith. We like trios. Triumvirates. Think of a three piece suit; the atom consisting of protons, neutrons, and electrons; the holy trinity consisting of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; and of course, the heavenly New Jersey breakfast sandwich consisting of pork roll, egg, and cheese. 

President of the Riigikogu Eiki Nestor (SDE) has convened an additional sitting of the Riigikogu on Monday, November 26, the agenda of which includes the first reading of the draft on the UN Global Compact for Migration submitted by Social Democrats (SDE).

I was 11 years old when I was sitting anxiously between two suitcases on the hard floor of a hay wagon. As the wagon rolled on an uneven gravel road, it was impossible to get comfortable due to the shaking of the wagon.
