One of my favourite parts in Moominland Midwinter.  Why do we never have huge bonfires by moonlight in the snow?

Moomin and the Groke. The Groke is scary, but likes lights. Possibly to get warm. Cos' she's always so cold. And scary... She can't get warm.

Illustration from "Comet in Moominland" by Tove Jansson via moominpl (tumblr).  “Then Sniff saw that it was a cave, a real cave, such as he had always dreamed of finding. Its mouth was rather small, but inside it opened out into a big room. The rocky walls rose smoothly up to a gap in the roof which let in the sunlight, and the floor was covered with smooth white sand.”
