It comes as a surprise to many but the beer was illegal in Iceland until 1989! Since then Icelanders celebrate beer day, the day it was made legal by drinking a lot of it. If you are in Iceland on March 1st be sure to make the most of the Beer day parties and special offers!
Konudagur is celebrated on the first day or the nearest Sunday, of the month of Góa, a month in the traditional Icelandic calendar. Góa is the second to last of the winter months, the days are starting to be visibly longer, summer is coming!
The day after Bun day – Bolludagur is Sprengidagur – Explosion or Blast day. On it Icelanders pretend that they haven’t spent the entire day before pigging out on cream buns, and instead gorge themselves on saltkjöt og baunir
Choux pastry, the type used to make profiteroles, is made into little balls, sliced through the middle, filled with cream and jam and then topped with chocolate. At least that is the classic, now there are many many varieties. However you have your buns you can guarantee that you will make a mess, but it will be entirely worth it!
