Participants in #НорильскВгирлянде New Year flash mob on Instagram put bright lights on the windows.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. New Year’s flash mob #НорильскВгирлянде (means Norilsk in New Year’s lights) was launched by the townspeople on Instagram. The essence of the action is simple: hang a colorful garland on the window, shoot a video and post it with a hashtag on your page.

“A very difficult year is finally ending. Let’s do a flash mob. It is so beautiful and joyful when everything sparkles, flickers and shines”, the organizers wrote.

Bright lights on the windows create magic atmosphere

“When you walk down the street and look at the windows with lights, it feels so cozy. You want to get home quickly. I like this atmosphere very much”, one of the participants of the action Lyudmila Lubich wrote in the comments.

Among those who supported the flash mob, there are also residents of other cities.

“I was born and lived in Norilsk for 40 years, left it two years ago, but my heart is there. I will take part in the action”, Natalia commented.

By the way, in the Scandinavian countries, for example, there is also a custom to decorate windows. In Norway, lilac candles are used for this, and in Sweden – glowing stars and juniper wreaths.
