I'm actually really surprised.. Denmark is called "the Happiest country", yet people here are getting really depressed from the winter! Not what I expected of vikings. We've had 3 months of "winter" if you want to call it that. It's snowed like 3 times and all of it has melted. In Alaska we have up to 8 months of winter with -45 (C & F) temperatures. And ok so people in Alaska do get depressed.. but not like here. Everyone's spirits are down. They look like zombies.. and Solvej says it's because there's no sun. Bjarke and Solvej were even telling me that some people buy SUN MACHINES.. not with UV rays but just lots of light. So you sit in front of them and they make you happy. This one costs about 800kr ($160) hahaa.. WOW.. I have to say I'm disappointed in the vikings!
