It has been a crazy week, everyone! Lots happening and not enough time, so my blogging has fallen behind a bit. But in the meantime, in the event that you have exhausted all of the adorable kitten videos that the internet has to offer today, I’ve posted some of my last pictures from 2012 over at my photo archive. And here are a few of the best ones, taken on Christmas Eve.
1. Christmas Eve at Hólavallagarður
Just before the buses stopped running on Christmas Eve, we headed downtown to be out for a bit before all the festivities started. One of our stops was at the Hólavallagarður cemetery. On Christmas Eve, many Icelandic families make visits to cemeteries to leave bouquets, pine boughs, and candles on the graves of loved ones. Electric crosses are often used, too. This is a photo of the grave of the famous Icelandic painter Johannes Kjarval, which someone had left a candle on for the holiday season.
