North Pole Fun Facts

The sun sets over the Lofoten Islands, northern Norway

Just in time for Christmas, this is a link to a story in Budget Travel magazine about the most mythical place on earth. Even though I traveled to Norway this past summer and into the Arctic Circle, I didn’t quite make it all the way to the North Pole. Perhaps next time.

  1. As the sun sets over northern Norway perhaps Chrismas at the North Pole would be an adventure. I didn’t know, according to the article, that there are two North Poles. Tonight is Christmas eve and tomorrow will be Christmas day. Here’s wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas!


    • And a Merry Christmas to you, too, Mary. I think Christmas at the North Pole (either one of them 🙂 ) would be a marvelous adventure (altho cold). Here’s hoping you have a wonderful New Year.


  2. Merry Christmas, Jennifer!


  3. Have a wonderful Christmas Jennifer and a very, very happy new year! I look forward to many more wonderful posts in 2013! 🙂

    That may not be the North Pole, but it sure is gorgeous. Thanks for making my Christmas Eve a bit brighter! We’ve got a gray day, here. Merry Christmas!


    • You’re welcome, Joy. I’m glad you liked it. Northern Norway is the closest I’ve ever come to the North Pole. There’s actually a shop up there on North Cape, Norway, called The Christmas House.
      There’s something magical about beautiful sunsets, isn’t there? Our day today is actually quite gray as well, so I might be staring at this photo a bit myself to brighten things up. Let’s plan that tomorrow, at least, will be merry whatever the sky decides to do 🙂


  5. Gorgeous shot – I’d like to get up to Iceland some time. Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas.


    • Thank you, and those are my thoughts, too, about Iceland. It’s definitely on my Bucket List. The best of Christmas wishes to you, too. Mele Kalikimaka 🙂


  6. Fun post, Jennifer….I have my impression of the North Pole forever tinged by Dark Matter, the ghost story by Michelle Paver. Chilling stuff, but still mythical…
