Happy New Year!

New Year's Eve Bonfire

Last night in Iceland, families came together to eat dinner and watch the yearly Áramótaskaup revue for entertainment. Many dressed in their warmest clothing and headed outside to visit neighbourhood bonfires, lit around the country to celebrate the returning light, or to watch the frenzy of fireworks.

Of course, as anywhere else in the world, some spent the first hours of the year out on the town, toasting to what the future holds.

No matter what the celebration entails, the Iceland Review team would like to wish our readers and their loved ones a Happy New Year. Gleðilegt ár and thanks for reading!
