Bonfire night

Mbl.is/Ómar Óskarsson

Crowds gathered at Ægissíða, west Reykjavík on Friday night to celebrate the Twelfth night of Christmas. The traditional bonfires had been postponed for a few days due to poor weather.  

This Icelandic Ice­landic New Year's Eve tra­di­tion is where fam­i­lies gather to sing songs about the elves and the hid­den folk who ac­cord­ing to folk­lore are promi­nent at this time of year. 

The rest of New Year's Eve's fireworks are also lit on this night to put an end to Christmas with a bang.
