Yup. It’s Christmas. Reykjavík 101 is pretty famously a very cosy and pleasant to be at Christmas time. It’s dark and gloomy and cold, sure. But, all the more reason to get up as many Christmas lights as possible. So, people in Reykjavík take the Christmas decorations as seriously as their beta-blockers. Whether it’s that controversial Christmas Cat sculpture, or the paper stars lighting up every downtown window, here’s a gallery of the scenes going on in the Icelandic capital right now.
