New Year’s Eve
New Year's Eve in Iceland is one spectacular celebration. Celebrations start with a dinner, followed by going to bonfires where people sing traditional Icelandic folk songs accompanied by trolls, elves and other beings.
Young Art Festival
Unglist, the art festival of young people, has been an annual event in Reykjavik since 1992. This festival week is packed with a multitude of performers and spectators.
Advent and Christmas
It is a good idea to come to Iceland even some time before Christmas as Icelanders go in for the celebrations from December 12th when the 13 Yuletide Lads (Door-slammer, Spoon-licker, Meat Hook, Candle Beggar, and others) arrive from the mountains bearing food and gifts.
