As I have mentioned a few times before on my blog, I am from Iceland. That means that I am Icelandic and I am very proud of that fact. I have lived back and forth between Iceland and the United States since I was 10 years old. I love both countries as my own. I can not imagine having to choose one or the other. I refuse to choose one or the other!!
My whole family lives in Iceland and I love to visit them. I also love when they come here to visit me :o) When I was in Iceland this summer I picked up a book about the Icelandic Yule Lads (Icelandic Santa's) so we could have it to read around Christmas time. I thought it was a great way to keep the Icelandic traditions alive in our home and I knew the boys would love reading this book.
Over the next few weeks I am going to share the story of the Yule Lads with you. I am going to tell you some of the things that are in this book as well as tell you some of my favorite memories as a child. I hope you enjoy learning a little bit about my culture.
