New Year’s Day Spent in Bed

As most people stay up late on New Year’s Eve in Iceland, people tend to sleep in on January 1.

But in the evening it’s time to celebrate the first day of the New Year. The immediate family usually has dinner at home, which might consist of fish rather than meat, as meat is eaten almost every day during the Christmas holidays. Salmon is a popular choice.

The evening news program features a story about the first baby born in Iceland in the New Year.

Although January 6 is officially the last day of Christmas, it’s back to work on January 2.
