Usage notesEdit

  • The word can used in either plural or singular, but there are little differences in the nuances. The singular form juhla is often used when the party is considered bigger, more public or taking place in a more spacious venue. On the other hand, the plural form juhlat has a nuance that the party is private or taking place in a smaller venue.
Rehtori kiitti juhlassa koko koulua menneestä vuodesta. (singular)
The principal thanked the whole school for the past year at the ceremony.
Minun juhlissani oli 30 (= kolmekymmentä) vierasta. (plural)
I had 30 guests at my party.
