The sun sleeps a lot in winter. It sprinkles the short days in a diffused, dusk-like light. These are the carefree days of winter. It is in winter that life is celebrated. During the long winters there are many festivities. Some festivals continue into the night. The women still gather to weave and quilt. Community centers have several women quilting and maybe a couple spinning wool, and still others weaving. The long winters are a time to enjoy each other and do those things which you can not do in the busy summers. This is the time to celebrate life in the far North.
