A Blazing Yule Tree in Malmo Sweden

This is one of things I love about Sweden. This tree is ablaze with small candles, cranking out a whooshing noise as they burn in the cold Swedish night.

Next to the tree, there are three rows of at least 150 candles each, all burning and emitting that same pleasing small roar of their fires. It’s a miraculous looking spectacle, and I keep thinking about the guy who has to light these wicks, it must take hours.
