the last day of winter

Gunnar Sverrisson

The old Icelandic calendar says today is the last day of winter and tomorrow the first day of summer. It's a cute tradition and tomorrow many children will receive some small summer gifts. But though the summer starts tomorrow it's more the first day of spring. Spring, prima vera, vor in icelandic – beginning of something new, it's fresh, expressing youth and freedom. Hopefully for all of us. 
Merry and happy summer everybody as we will say tomorrow!
