Kokoo koko kokko kokoon!

More fun Finnish tongue-twisters! This is a sentence that we foreigners found ourselves coining as we were living in Finland and learning the language, not knowing that it was already a popular tongue-twister. It came to us on midsummer, as we were building a midsummer bonfire:

Kokoo koko kokko kokoon.

Which means “Gather the whole bonfire into a pile.”

As the night wore on and we all sat around the fire struggling to stay awake until sunrise, we amused ourselves by saying:

Koita kokea koko kokko.

“Try to experience the whole fire.”
