Swedish weather tracking company SMHI has released the measured hours of sunlight during December for different parts of Sweden.
What this means is the actual time you can see the sun and it’s not obstructed by clouds and a heavy overcast. One place called VÃ¤xjÃ¶ had only 20 minutes of sun during the whole of December! That is 0,045% of that entire month!
LuleÃ¥ had one hour of sun, but it’s so far north so their median value is only five hours anyway. Some of the parts that had the most sun had about 60 hours of sun. Not too shabby in comparison.
No wonder Sweden has such a high suicide rate…
