I’m not from the US so I’m not entirely sure of the joke here. Is it because from October to April in Alaska it’s just entirely night due to it being Alaska?

OT Is your username related to the Arthas (ICC) death cinematic?

Anchorage does not experience 24 hours of darkness at any time during the year, but this is a typical Alaskan joke.

You need to be north of the Arctic Circle to find a period of 24-hour darkness. That is actually what the Arctic Circle denotes.

During December, in Anchorage, the sun rises at about 10 am and sets at about 4 pm, so the days are very short.

No chance, I live in Ketchikan and the sun sets at 3:30. We're still a month from the winter solstice, and Anchorage is significantly further north. Sunrise may be at 10 for them, but sunset would have to be 3ish
