#NationalSleepyHeadDay is an annual event in #Finland where the last person to wake up in the house is woken up using water. Every year, on July 27, a Finnish celebrity is thrown into the sea at 7am!

The celebration is based on the story of the Saints of Ephesus, who slept in a cave for 200 years during the Middle Ages to hide from the Roman Emperor.
