Reading on Christmas Eve

What a lovely tradition!

In Iceland, books are exchanged on Christmas Eve, and you spend the rest of the night READING. People generally take their books to bed along with some chocolate. How cozy and wonderful does that sound? Iceland publishes MORE BOOKS per capita than any other country, and new books are typically published only during the Christmas season. The frenzy is called Jolabokaflod, which means Christmas Book Flood.
