In Iceland, Christmas begins on Christmas Eve and lasts for thirteen days, until January 6th normally referred to as þrettándinn (13th day).” It is often referred to in English as ‘Twelfth Night’ or ‘Epiphany’. By this day, pretty much everything is back to normal; everyone is back at work and schools have started. In the evening of this day, families usually get together, have dinner, say goodbye to Christmas by shooting fireworks and holding bonfires to burn off Christmas.
