#FestivalSonkajarvi : The #Wife #Carrying #World #Championships and #Festival has been held annually in #Sonkajarvi since 1992.

The objective is for the male to carry the female through an obstacle track in the fastest time and the 'prize money' is the wife's weight in #beer .

The event is inspired by the practice of wife-stealing and also a notorious robber named #Rosvo-Ronkainen from the late 1800s, who made potential #gang members carry loads to prove their fitness

Celestial Lights by Ole C. Salomonsen is an #awesome video, shot in the northern parts of Finland, @Norway and @Sweden during autumn 2011, winter and spring 2012.

It is a video about the #Northern #Lights and contains recordings from some of the most spectacular #auroral displays
