Dawn, Jolabokaflod and A Gift

Dawn on this Christmas Eve morning was very pretty.

Every Christmas Eve, the Icelandic people practice something called ‘jolabokaflod,’ which translates to ‘Christmas book flood. ‘ Jolabokaflod involves giving books as presents on Christmas Eve, so that friends and family can spend the cozy night in curled up with a good story. This is what we have done today, lit the fire and spent the afternoon reading after a heart warming pasty lunch in a rainy garden with our eldest daughter here for a covid-safe Christmas ┬ávisit. Oh, how I longed to hug her……

We left Mince ┬ápies on next door’s doorstep with a Guardian Angel to take our love indoors with it.
