Cecilia Blomdahl, a Swedish woman, watches the last sunset in 2021 and is waiting for sunrise in March!
A Swedish citizen who lives with her husband near the North Pole is preparing for a long harsh winter and a night that runs from late October to early March without the sun rising in what is known as the polar night phenomenon.
Cecilia Blumdahl, 31, documented her last days before the long darkness in a video she posted on Tik Tok, which attracted more than 6 million views, knowing that she has more than 1.3 million followers.
She explained that she moved six years ago to Svalbard, a Norwegian archipelago located south of the North Pole that faces darkness around the clock for up to 5 months.
"We only have a few days until the polar night and it feels crazy, but it's the truth," she said in her latest YouTube video, noting that the temperature was 10 degrees Fahrenheit that morning.
The Daily Mail reported that Blomdahl lives in a cabin with her husband, and they enjoy the scenic views on their boat.
She noted that she is not sad that this time of year is over, and she is ready for the darkness of the polar night and all the special beauty that it brings.
She and her husband, she said, began to take out the heavy covers, line the boat at the mooring, store food, and use a synthetic material in the boat that absorbs water to make antifreeze.
While the constant darkness will be a nightmare for most people, Blomdahl said she is looking forward to getting dressed in her winter clothes and seeing the Northern Lights.
She revealed that she will continue to broadcast videos of various frozen polar phenomena, noting that she posted footage of her last year wandering in the dark in the middle of the afternoon and was viewed 8.9 million times.
