Dark time and Northern light



[:en]In late October, the dark season in Uummannaq begins, the light fades out day by day and the polar night begins to brighten up by the old spirits who play ball with heads from different animals, better known as the beautiful dancing northern lights. Even though the darkness falls, there are plenty of light and joy in the living rooms around in the small homes, here the scent spreads of freshly baked cakes during the Christmas season, the children sled in the newly-cut snow and the hunters make their fishing gear ready for the many exciting excursions of the winter.[:]
