The name “Revontulet” is a Finnish word meaning Northern Lights, literally “Fox Fire”. There is a Finnish folk story: a fox in the north runs on the snow and sweeps its tail, so that sparks fly off into the sky. Moreover, in the old Finnish language there is a word resembling to the word “fox”, but meaning “to make magic”. Thus, Revontulet can be referred to as “Magic Lights” too.
