"Mørketiden" perfectly sums up the first half of winter, which lasts from the beginning of October to early January. In these months it's still wet and often accompanied by freakish storms. Any snowfall is washed away by rain and so the only light to contrast the darkness is provided by twinkling Christmas lights from the city streets. It is oh, so dark!

In this week's episode we bring optimism and hope to the darkest month of the year as Lucy and Lucia explain the Scandinavian tradition of St. Lucia and her gruesome sister Lussi. We also investigate how light deprivation can affect your body and mind.
