It is time for the longest nights and shortest days in the northern hemisphere. Also christmas time. But christmas is more than shopping, over-eating and crazy commercialized consumption time. It is time when the planet earth tilts back and the days starts slowly get longer and nights shorter, also the sun is at it´s lowest at winter solstice. This tilt happens on thursday 22nd at 0630 am (in Norway).

The darkest time of the year has been celebrated over centuries in many cultures all over the world. You don´t have to be a christian or other believer to enjoy this dark time of the year. It is a turning point when we start heading towards spring!

It is great to see things in a bigger perspective and follow the earths rhythm. One way to experience this is to go up to the mountains.

Feel the cold,

                    shortness of the days,

          beauty

and the light.
