Just when I thought the whole of Iceland’s stock of fireworks must be well and truly exhausted, they’ve rallied for what seems like round 10 of Reasons to Let Off Fireworks.

Apparently January 6 is Twelfth Night where families gather to let off fireworks, have bonfires and farewell the 13 Lads of Christmas back into the mountains.

Here’s some of the action right outside our hotel (we’re not at the bonfire as the wind is ripping through at 80 kms per hour!!). Please excuse the poor quality – hastily taken on my iPad in -1c while wearing slippers.
