Christmas photos Posted by sequoia on Nov 20, 2011 in Icelandic culture
If you want me to talk about something specific, want more photos of this or that, or want to know some grammar, just comment and ask for it.
Christmas is coming and Christmas-themed stuff started to show up a few weeks ago. I lost some photos that I had so you’re getting a mix of Christmas decorations and Christmas food instead of just food.
As it gets closer to Christmas, more and more decorations are put up around the town and you start to hear people broadcasting Christmas music down the main shopping street. Some kiosks selling gifts and candy also start appearing, and around Christmas and Christmas Eve hot chocolate is given out, booths selling sugar-roasted almonds appear, and plays are put on outdoors for children. There’s one night where a choir of people walk down the main shopping street holding lit candles and singing, everyone is out doing last-minute shopping and the stores are open late, and people are singing into microphones all down the street.
I’ll have at least two more posts worth of Christmas material to show you by the end of it.
