"Look! The Northern Lights!"
Hero Girl when the lights form.

The Northern Lights are bright, colorful lights that appear in the sky in the Arctic and Antarctic regions.

In the film, The Polar Express, after Hero Girl and Billy sing "When Christmas Comes to Town," the lights appear in the sky and Hero Boy, Hero Girl, and Billy watch them. They take on the form of Santa's sleigh and in a way show the way to the North Pole.


  • They are similar to the Iceland lights.
