Icelandic National Day

The national day parade

Today is the Icelandic National Day. It’s a big deal, here in Iceland, it’s a national holiday and there are festivities all over the country. Today it’s extra special since it’s the 200th anniversary of Jón Sigurðsson a national hero and a leader of the 19th century Icelandic independence movement.

The picture above it taken a few years ago. The weather today is not promising so it’s likely that the festivities will be moved indoors. The national day parade

Gleðilega þjóðhátíð!

Þessi mynd er tekin fyrir nokkum árum en veðrið í dag lofar ekki góðu á þessu 200 ára afmæli Jóns Sigurðssonar. Það er líklegt að hátíðarhöldin hér í þorpinu verði innandyra í ár.
