Let there be light!

Statistics have confirmed what people in the south of the country already suspected: December was an unusually dark month.

High pressure combined with dampness kept the sun at bay and only let a few rays through now and again. 

Swedish Radio News reports that Växjö enjoyed just 20 minutes of sunlight in December - that’s 39 seconds of sun per day.   

But everyone has not been in the dark, in northern Sweden, especially in Borlänge, residents enjoyed 62 hours of sun in December while statistics show that 35 hours is the norm.
