A colourful sky

In late autumn, the Northern Lights are a magnificent sight. Three bands of green meander across the sky; they flicker like green gossamer curtains as green smoke rolls out into the night. Suddenly and silently, they explode into green, white, purple and pink. The short days are equally intense; the low sun brightens the dusting of snow on the mountaintops and is reflected in the frozen puddles. In the far north, the sun sinks below the horizon for good from the end of November, but even then there are streaks of silver, orange and sheer pink around midday. Indoors there is lutefisk (dried cod that has been soaked in a lye solution), lamb and game, festivals, culture, candlelight and good conversation. People particularly enjoy warmth and companionship at this time.
