Iceland's Christmas traditions

Christmas in Iceland – The Yule Lads: If your mother was a fearsome ogress, your father a lazy ogre, and you lived in a cold and grimy cave up in the mountains, do you think you’d be very nice? Well, the Icelandic Yule Lads aren’t particularly. There are 13 of these troublesome brothers, each one arriving in one of the 13 nights before Christmas to wreak havoc in Icelandic homes.

Jólabókaflóð: the Christmas flood of books: A country of bookworms, Iceland prints more books per capita than any other country in the world, with over 50% of Icelanders reading more than eight books per year. It’s no surprise, then, that one of Iceland’s best-loved Christmas traditions revolves around reading.

Christmas at 66 Degrees North: How do you celebrate Christmas on the edge of the Arctic region, in a season when the sun provides less than 5 hours of daylight?
