27 Dec

Jolabokaflod, meaning Book Flood,  is an Icelandic tradition where books are given as gifts on Christmas Eve and everyone spends the day snuggled up with their book. For various reasons we couldn’t do this on Christmas Eve so did it today and peace reigned for about 15 minutes! Some people read for hours….

Here are the books about to be opened……. Wrapping paper either from Who Gives a Crap or the inner page photo from Guardians that we have saved over the year.
