Merry Christmas in Viganella this and every year to come


Viganella is a small town in Italy whose inhabitants dreaded the arrival of the winter season.

The reason being that each year for 84 days in a row the sun would not shine in the town as it went behind the 1,600-Meter high mountain that covered the town. The 197 inhabitants were plunged into a near darkness and just waited for the 84 days to pass so that they can once again feel the heat of the sun.

With the sun not shining in the town the inhabitants lived a depressed life a scenario which docs call the “Seasonal Affective Disorder” or SAD.

But finally their pain has been heard of and the authorities have just installed a 8-meter wide and 5-meter tall mirror that has been installed on a mountain so that it can reflect the sun’s light on to the town for approximately 8 hours every day.

Yet we can't get an infeed into Newfoundland Labrador or a fixed link.

If by "Newfoundland Labrador" you mean Newfoundland and Labrador, an infeed for what? Lots of power in Labrador. And there are already three fixed links to the province.

How Newfoundland-centric of you.
