Do you remember that scene in, well, every movie, when there is a funeral and it’s pouring rain? Well, Icelanders have a saying for that. „Oft kemur regn eftir reiðarsalag“ translates literally to “there is often rain after a shock/tragedy.”
It seems that Icelanders noticed that the sky got darker and there was rain after a tragedy hit, and instead of being dramatic about it, we honed a saying about it.
So, when we look up into the dark sky at the funeral, we can turn to the next person with a slight know-it-all smile on our face, and say; it often rains after when tragedy hits. I mean, if you’re that kind of person. Which you totally aren’t. That’s just how the saying goes, right!
