With its strange name and foreign customs, Up Helly Aa just might be one of the best times you have ever had. The largest fire festival in all of Europe, Up Helly Aa is based on and celebrates the Viking way of life. Just as Shetlanders would celebrate in pagan ways after the Christmas celebrations, modern day Shetlanders place a proclamation with town gossip in the city center at dawn. But the main event is the galley, or Viking ship, that is recreated and then burned. Then all through the night revelers party and drink, some dressed in costume, and all are sure to have a good time.
