The Lingua / Norðan Jökuls Summer Greeting, 2009
Iceland traditionally celebrates a First Day of Summer, doing so each year on the first Thursday after April 18. Everyone realises there can still be blizzards throughout May and sometimes even into June, but many migratory birds have returned by the First Day of Summer, and there are already many other signs of spring. Anyway, the Icelandic summer is so wonderful that there is every reason to celebrate it officially as a holiday, even before it shows up in nature!
