Icelandic National Day

Today, 17 June 2014, Iceland celebrated its 70th anniversary of independence from Denmark. I attended the celebrations: "Dagskrá 17 júní í Reykjavík" with Þóra Másdóttir (Thora Masdottir). It was wonderful to see the involvement of children in the day: wearing their national dress, participating in the parade, and enjoying the balloons, music, and family concerts.
