To see the world’s biggest bonfire you’ll have to visit Alesund, Norway, where wood pallets are stacked over 40 meters (131 ft) high on an artificial island. The occasion? Sankthans, or ‘Midsummer’, an annual festival in commemoration of John the Baptist’s birth. The day is celebrated on the 24th of June (around summer solstice) in Scandinavian countries and other parts of Europe.

Traditional Norwegian - Stabbur ~ This traditional Norwegian building called "Stabbur" was used to store food. The two floors made it perfect for hanging meat from the ceiling in good distance from the claws of greedy animals.  This particular building is set below "Slottsfjellet" in Tønsberg, Norway, where ruins from the Middle Ages are still to be seen. | Flickr - Photo Sharing!
