Jolabokaflod...

Is an Icelandic christmas eve tradition, where families exchange books as presants, and then spend the whole day reading said book and drinking hot chocolate. I was reminded for this again this evening, after stumbling across it a few years ago. And thought you guys migh find it as intereasting as I do. :)
