Saint Thorlakur’s Day

Snjótittlingur – Snow Bunting – Plectrophenax nivalis

Today is St. Thorlakur’s Day. Thorlakur was an Icelandic bishop in Skalholt and died on December 23, 1193.  This is the day for last minute gift shopping, decorating the Christmas tree and many eat the traditional fish Skate, which smells horrible.
