    Up Helly Aa
    On the last tuesday of January, the town of Lerwick in the Shetland Islands has their annual Fire festival, Up Helly Aa.
    I so want to go to this.
    Imagine 1000 men dressed as vikings with torches in a procession with their viking boat that they are marching with. At the end they light it up on fire for all to see. Totally awesome. There are also groups singing and dancing thru out the dance halls of Lerwick. BTW, completely awesome shots. I have one as my screen saver. Just google image Up Helly Aa and there are more images.[IMG]

    Isn't there a Viking show coming to the History Channel? Not a documentary.

    Though hairy, he was too much of a sissy to be a true viking.
