“Some praise the Lord for Light, The living spark; I thank God for the Night, The healing dark.” That's a quote from Robert Service, the bard of the North. He knew what he was talking about. The enveloping December darkness of Yellowknife is an otherworldly experience – comforting you, cloaking you, putting you at ease. Plus, there’s the wonder of the Aurora. Like a familiar and whimsical friend, it visits us nightly, always faithful but always full of surprises. It’s enough to make you wish that the sun would never rise.
