A Festival of Lights in Norway

By Linda Tancs

While the United States celebrates Thanksgiving today (and the start of the holiday season), Bergen, Norway is gearing up for its own start to holiday cheer with the Festival of Lights.   Taking place in the city center at Festplassen and Lille Lungegardsvann on 30 November, the event features fireworks and torchlight processions, one last chance to be bathed in light before the onset of December, the darkest month of the year.   While you’re in town, don’t miss Gingerbread Town, the world’s biggest gingerbread city with miniature houses, trains, cars and ships made from real gingerbread.
