Corner View - Longing for....Christmas in Reykjavik?!?

>> Wednesday, November 7, 2012


I just LOVE the two men in the video, they just seem like they'd be such fun dinner guests!!!  I love how the one man just keeps on talking excitedly and the other one just smiles and nods, and I don't know, maybe looks like he is just a tinsey bit laughing at his partner.  So CUTE!  I must show this to Vito so he understands how he should act when I talk and talk excitedly.  He currently rolls his eyes... and even violently protests some things that I say.  He thinks he is so tough.  Does he still not know that 'resistance is futile'???  I thought I proved that to him the day we got married!?

Anyway, I've been recently obsessed by everything Iceland and having come across this video I instantaneously got inspired to start creating some of my very own Christmas traditions.  I grew up in Ukraine and back in the day we had the tree for New Year's Eve, and the presents were exchanged to ring in the New Year with new stuff.  It was a magical night when kids got to stay up till midnight and we ate a very elaborate dinner prepared by the women in the family and watched the obligatory New Year's Eve musical program on tv.  It was something out of this world for a kid.  I'm really looking forward to start to create something like that for us.  For now though I just want to grab the whole family and fly over to Iceland, stalk the two men down and see if they'd invite us all over for Christmas dinner!

Wouldn't Christmas is Iceland be wonderful?! It looks lovely! I had hoped to visit Iceland this year, but sadly my bank account would not allow it :-(

I love these peoples' spirit! I'm inspired to enter the darkness of New England winter with a smile :) Or at least I'll try!

after the near perpetual darkness of winter in Amsterdam, I find myself a little less excited about true perpetual darkness in Iceland. But maybe in the summer it's nice.

I think I could take Icelandic cold during Christmas time, it may even be very ... Christmassy! :)

after watching your video I think I'm ready for Christmas in Germany. I love it. It looks cold but wonderful at the same time.
