"When we were kids, we often saw the Northern Light. Mother told us not to tease the Northern Light... but as kids, we sneaked out and we pointed at the Northern Light, teasing it,
'Si, si, si!
The leg as an owl and the forehead as a hammer...
si, si, si'...
and we kept on teasing it and it was moving closer and closer...
Mother said that we should not do that because godfather would be angry.
'You don't tease the Northern Light...
it can suddenly reach you and pull you up in the sky!'
It was scary and powerful! Since then, we always respected the power of the Northern Light. We were tempted to tease it but we did it secretly... it moved so fast and it often seemed that it was reaching out to us. We were frightened and ran into the house! We didn't dare tell mother that we had teased the Northern Light! Godfather did not allow to tease the Northern Light... because Northern Light is God's creation and all God's creations must be respected. Therefore, we have to leave the Northern Light in peace!"
