Inge Look and her Aunties

Inge Look (Ingeborg Lievonen) was born in Helsinki, Finland in 1951. As child she and her family lived in a seven story apartment building in the city. It was literally teeming with tenants... so many people, personalities and smells. The two that quickly captivated Inge's attention were Alli and Fifi, two older women who's exuberance for life was contagious.

She refers to them as the "Aunties" and they became the inspiration for her very popular cards. The motto for these two fabulous old ladies is... 

"Time is not money and spending it isn’t a sin."

Thank you Ella.

It was first held on April 2, 1985, in honour of Sirindhorn's 30th birthday, and has been celebrated annually ever since.

On the occasion of the holiday, numerous cultural activities are held, including, but not limited to, academic seminars, exhibitions, lectures, concerts.
