Icelanders have a beautiful tradition of giving books to each other on Christmas Eve and then spending the night reading. This custom is so deeply ingrained in the culture that it is the reason for the Jolabokaflod, or “Christmas Book Flood,” when the majority of books in Iceland are sold between September and December in preparation for Christmas giving.
I love to read Christmas stories. I have a small collection of them.
My Mother in Law comes to visit us today. My daughter is working tonight and after she is finished we will have a nice dinner. I have bought a book for Wanita and my daughter this year. I hope I get one as well.
