Yule calendar: 22 days to go.

Today's calendar entry is the first in a series about Yuletide in a small town in Iceland.

This is the elementary school I went to. When I was in 7th or 8th grade, several classes made faux stained glass pictures out of construction paper and coloured florist paper for Yule and put them in the windows of the school. The display was a big hit and in the following years more and more pictures were made for more and more windows until almost every window in the school was covered. The displays change a bit from year to year because there is always some damage when they are taken down after the New Year, so every class gets to make one or more every year. These are scans of photos I took many years ago. It will be interesting to see this year's decorations.

Christmas gospel and Yule lads.

Yule lads.
