Ceremonial Lighting of Oslo Tree

The Oslo tree was presented on Sunday by the Norwegian ambassador at a festive gathering in Austurvellir in downtown Reykjavík. A Christmas tradition, the Norwegian ambassador sang a Norwegian carol to those collected for the tree-lighting ceremony.

Icelandic bands also performed, and the Jólasveinnur, the Icelandic Christmas lads, made an appearance and entertained children.
