Merry Christmas! Now is the perfect time to share why Christmas is one of the most awaited seasons of the year in Iceland. People prepare for Iceland’s wonderfully weird traditions that many get excited about as they look forward to good food, a festive mood, and both quality and quantity time spent with loved ones.
In this episode, I share the wonderfully weird traditions of Christmas in Iceland like the Book Flood of Christmas, the story of Iceland’s “Santa Claus” — the Yule Lads, and the strange delicacies we prepare during this time of the year. I’m going to talk about the activities you can do and the reasons why Icelanders celebrate such customs and practices during this special time of the year.On January third, if anyone asks me, ‘How WAS your Christmas?” I say, ‘Christmas is not over yet.’ - Sigrun
