In Iceland, we have a saying: Að gera sér glaðan dag. It means “To make a happy day for yourself.”
We Icelanders like to make happy days for ourselves.
Some of our days go back hundreds of years and celebrate special traditions or events in our history. Others are more recent additions, or are simply for fun.
In this beautifully-illustrated book, we invite you to share in some of our happy days and seasonal events, and to gera þér glaðan dag.
The book contains 60 beautiful illustrations that are as whimsical and fun as the days and events that they represent. An elaboration on each of Iceland’s special days, including its historical and cultural significance, may be found at the back of the book.
A delightful planner in which to jot down appointments, birthdays or significant events, or just to enjoy for the lovely artwork and warm and witty text.
