Finland is home to one of the world's most extensive welfare systems, which includes high-quality state-funded education, medical and employment benefits.
Workers are entitled to five weeks vacation a year, plus 10 public holidays. Most companies also provide Christmas Eve and Midsummer's Eve in June as days off, even though the two are not officially recognized as public holidays. Finns are also entitled to up to nine months leave for a new child plus two years of unpaid childcare leave without losing their jobs. Workers can also take unpaid study leave for two years out of five.
In 2008, Finland made headlines after parliament member Tommy Tabermann proposed a bill to grant workers an additional week off for a "love vacation" in an effort reduce the country's high divorce rates.
