Today is Iceland’s Independence Day

IMAG0205Every year on 17th June Iceland celebrates its 1944 independence from Denmark. This year is the country’s 65th year of full independence.

The day begins with speeches and parades and continues with family fun, live music, street performers and a long list of activities.

The younger generations consider last night, the 16th, as among the year’s biggest party nights – but it’s back to work tomorrow and Friday.

Wherever you are in the world, Happy Independence Day from Iceland!
