There's this concept in Finnish language and culture that I haven't quite found anywhere else (if you know a word for it in some other language, please do tell!). It is 'Kalsarikännit', and it means getting drunk in your underwear alone in your home.

I understand that all over the world there are people with problems with substance abuse who might do this regularly, but in Finland kalsarikännit is a viable choice for spending a free night and it is so common that we have a word for it.

Btw, do you have a midsummer holiday around solstice (~23rd of June) in the US?
