Many beliefs around the northern lights see the phenomena as a good omen.
Northern Lights and Sex
The Aurora Borealis have also been linked to fertility and childbirth, and in Chinese and Japanese cultures it is still believed that a child conceived under the northern lights will be blessed with good fortunes.
Fish and Fuitful Crops
For example, in the old days, many Scandinavians believed the Aurora was the reflection of huge schools of herring in the sea. And that fishermen would enjoy good catches of fish.
The Swedes used to believe a winter with much northern lights gave good crops the next year. Some Eskimos in Canada also believed the lights were the gods of harvest and hunting, and therefore took extra care not to offend the northern lights. Whatever that implies.
