An Icelandic Christmas Eve

198381-reading-by-the-fireAccording to the BBC, Iceland has more books and writers per capita than anywhere else in the world, with the Christmas traditions to prove it. In fact, it is said that one in ten Icelanders will publish a book, and their nod to the Christmas season is complete with a book festival in the days leading up to the holiday for the sole purpose of gift giving (and reading, apparently.)  Also chocolate! In Iceland, it is tradition to give a book on Christmas Eve, and then, to head to bed- with chocolate- to spend the rest of the evening reading.  We can’t imagine a better tradition.

Bravo, Iceland, and Merry Christmas from Books for Her.
