Happy Women’s Day! Til hamingju með Konudaginn

The old Icelandic month called Þorri is officially over. We had our NE North Dakota Þorrablót and it was a HUGE sell-out success!

Sunday, Feb. 23rd (today), we begin the new month called Góa. The very first day of this month is called "Konudagur" or "Women’s Day." The man of the house is to bring his woman coffee in bed, flowers, candy, and treat her special all day.

Icelandic folklore regarding the month of Góa says, "To survive Þorri and Góa is to get over the hump of winter.”

Have a great day!
