Happy Icelandic Language Day!

National Icelandic Language Day is held on the 16 November every year in Iceland, to mark the birthday of their famous Icelandic poet, naturalist and author, Jonas Hallgrimsson (1807-1845). This day has been celebrated for more than 15 years to help preserve the purity of the Icelandic language and to protect it against foreign influence – especially American slang.

hamingju með afmælið – happy birthday (in Icelandic!)
