1. We’re nine hours ahead of SLC, so the morning sessions start at 7 pm here, and the afternoon sessions at 11 pm. Many people listen to or watch the morning sessions at home and go to a church building for Priesthood and Saturday afternoon session, which are shown delayed over the satellite on Sunday afternoon. Of course, Sunday afternoon session never gets shown at all, so if something really important happened in that session, we’d be the last to hear about it. (Although the zealots who stay up until 1 am listening to conference would smugly email us, I guess.)
2. At our stake center, conference is broadcast in four languages: Finnish, English, Swedish and Russian. There’s a Swedish speaking minority in Finland, and a few members in the stake (mostly from the West coast of Finland) prefer the Swedish. The temple often has Russian visitors, so they have a chance to hear conference as well. The English broadcast is very popular. Many members who have been on missions or have otherwise lived in the English-speaking world prefer hearing it in the original, so they pile into the English room.
3. Women come to the priesthood session: not very many, but they include sister missionaries, and it doesn’t attract any interest one way or the other.
4. Overt Americanisms will get a murmur or even a laugh from the congregation, usually sports metaphors or references to lifestyle. The idea of writing checks gets a chuckle as paper checks were replaced by electronic transfers here more than a decade ago. One of my favorites was a description of a poor family who, the speaker lamented, had only one working car. Since a majority of the congregation had taken public transport to the chapel, it got a big laugh.
5. It has been a practice, especially (but not exclusively) among YSAs, to bring a bag of candy to general conference. Said candy is shared amongst pew-mates. This practice was denounced by a mission president a few years ago, but as a more recent mission president offered me some licorice in April, I guess its OK now. (I offered him Haribo in return. Of course.)
