At the dawn of 2012 IceNews would like to wish you a happy and healthy year ahead and to thank you for reading and commenting over the last year.
From Nuuk to Helsinki and from Reykjavík to Copenhagen – and not forgetting Tórshavn, Stockholm, Oslo and Marienhamn – New Year’s is a time for fireworks and fun, when people gather with family and friends to eat, drink, explode things, and reflect on the year gone by. Whether it was a good year or a bad year, there is always plenty to talk about — and there are always resolutions to be made and the hope that next year (which is now called ‘this year’) will be the best, most successful and happiest yet. Here’s hoping.
People in Iceland, and indeed around the world, claim that the New Year’s fireworks in Reykjavík are the best in the world. IceNews is far too impartial and upstanding to assert that as fact; instead we ask you to judge for yourself. The live webcam feed website will feature a recorded and edited highlights video for at least the next few days — and possibly all year long.
Wherever you are in the world and however you chose to celebrate the arrival of 2012 (if at all), we at IceNews wish you all the best.
