Be Good To Your Woman This Weekend

Published February 22, 2013

In case you’ve missed the pink-laden and heart-festooned advertisements for household goods and electronics in the local papers, here’s a reminder that Sunday is Konudagur, or ‘Woman’s Day’ in Iceland.
Traditionally, Konudagur marks the first day of the old Norse month of Góa and men were meant to be particularly attentive to their wives, giving them cakes and flowers and whatnot.
You should be good to the ladies in your life everyday, but maybe try to go that extra mile this Sunday, alright?
