Flowers for Icelandic husbands

Most men in Iceland can expect a delivery of flowers, chocolates and loving kisses or some sort of pampering from their partners today, because today is officially Husband Day in Iceland.

Husband Day falls upon the first day of the old winter month Thorri, which begins on January 19. Wife Day begins on the first day of spring month Góa, on February 18. Morgunbladid reports.

In the period between those two days, during the month of Thorri, Icelanders celebrate the midwinter feast of Thorrablót (“winter sacrifice”) with old-fashioned Icelandic food and drink.
