Christmas along the coast

Bookmark and Share

PICTURE STORY: Communities all over Norway geared up for Christmas, and Florø, on the west coast between Ålesund and Bergen, was among them. Extra lights were mounted to offset the seasonal darkness, and they generally stay up well into January. It’s a season of busy shopping and other necessary preparations, punctuated by traditional food and drink in this municipality with a population of 11,600.
