What am I celebrating?

January 6, 2013

sunriseThe Inuvik Sunrise Celebration – the annual celebration of the return of the sun after an absence of about 28 days.  A bonfire and fireworks add to this celebration on the Saturday closest to the sunrise.


More about Inuvik at L’Encyclopedie canadienne.


  1. So this coincides with the day the 3 Kings Bring gifts to Baby Jesus. Jan 6th or the 12th day of Christmas. I like Celebrating the return of the Sun better. Thanks for info 🙂

    • The gift of light returning is an important one!

    • Thanks for the mention! Poor little sad Christmas trees. We should think of some better way to use them after Christmas.
