Christmas Eve it turns out is a much bigger holiday here in Iceland than Christmas Day. In the United States, some families celebrate together Christmas Eve, some do it on Christmas Day, some do a little each day. But my cousin stopped by today and explained to me the rule about gift giving here, that it is all supposed to be done by 6pm Christmas Eve, and then all the presents open after dinner. Good to know, although I had already arranged things such that I have presents to deliver tomorrow. As an American, I reserve this right, I think. And anyhow, the main thing with a gift, any gift, is that one have in mind the needs of the recipient, and give them something you think they do not already have. A gift like that is always really, really appreciated, in my experience. With warmest holiday greetings to all that read this. May you enjoy tonight, and tomorrow, and have a feeling of peace in your heart.
