Nice quiz! I like the random nature of the questions, very refreshing ;) But I must say that the finnish word 'revontulet' (fires of the fox) is much more interesting than the latin word for northern lights.

Yeah, but then half of the Finnish questions would be about their language which is sooo complicated. When I was last summer in Inari (Northern Finland) I understood two words: yksi (one) and kiitos (thanks). But you are right, I will change it.
