The Árbæjarsafn museum’s annual Christmas fair took place during the weekend. The event celebrates old Icelandic Christmas traditions and allows guests to experience the Yuletide as it was back when.

Mischievous Yule lads attended the event and entertained the youngest guests, beautiful designs were carved into traditional laufabrauð bread, and people gathered around the Christmas tree to dance and sing carols.
