Icelandic day of overeating

Salted lamb and lentil soup. This is what a typical Icelander eats today at Sprengidagur (eat-until-you-burst-day). Múlakaffi Restaurant is known for serving traditional Icelandic food, they cook over 1000 litres of soup and 1 ½ ton of meat today.

Apparently Icelandic customers can't wait to get their hands on this.
