This past Friday, my husband defended his PhD thesis.
After 2 hours of debate and discourse, the opponents recommended that my husband be granted his PhD! Later that evening, we celebrated the defense with the post-doctoral party, ie the Dissertation Karonkka. The Karonkka is a dinner or party organized in honor of the Opponent(s) and Custos. It can also be used to thank any supervisors, professors or anyone who contributed to the work.
It was a long day, but a good one.
