When I lived in England I celebrated Christmas in the forest, but now here in Lapland we celebrated New Year in the forest near Solberget Vildmarksbyn.
There were 28 of us who gathered at Solberget at 23:23.
The children travelled on Reindeer and sled while the adults walked behind
It took us about 15 minutes to get to the location in the forest (which we had created earlier in the day) where we would celebrate the New Year.
There was even a snow reindeer sculpture
The party commenced with ice cream and warm punch for everyone
We sat around the camp fire talking and singing
We left the party at 2am, but it continued long into the night.
