Join in Iceland’s end of Christmas celebrations!
Tomorrow, 6 January, is traditionally the last day of the Christmas holidays in Iceland and locals mark the occasion with bonfires, dance and song.
This popular day of celebration is known in Icelandic as ‘Þrettándinn’ (meaning ‘the thirteenth’, with reference to the fact that is it thirteen days since Christmas) and is chiefly associated with elves, trolls and the Yule Lads.
People get together around bonfires, let off any remaining fireworks from New Year’s Eve and sing elf songs.
