Coming in on the barge to Lyngen I had to double-take – is that Nisse?  He looks quite at home in the Arctic snow.  I would have thought it was the juletid season if I didn’t know it was three months after Christmas.  The difference between Christmas and Spring is that the sun has returned and usually Nisse is resting in the barn with the animals.  I guess he doesn’t know the time with all that snow across his eyes.
