Give Love on Christmas Day

People making lists, buying special gifts, Taking time to be kind to one and all. It's that time of year when good friends are near, And you wish you could give more than just presents from a store. Why don't you give love on Christmas Day Even the man who has everything Would be so happy if you would bring him love on Christmas Day, No greater gift is there than love. People you don't know smile and nod hello, Everywhere there's an air of Christmas joy. It's that once of year when the world's sincere, And you'd like to find a way to show the things that words can't say. Why don't you give love on Christmas Day? The man on the street and the couple upstairs All need to know there's someone who cares. Give love on Christmas Day No greater gift is there than love. What the world needs is love Yes, the world needs more love. Why don't you give love on Christmas Day Every little child on Santa's knee Has room for your love underneath his tree Give love on Christmas Day No greater gift is there than love.

National traditions


In Iceland, Christmas is very important and is celebrated everywhere in society; families, friends and colleagues make the season special by having Christmas parties, baking cookies and Laufabrauð, or leaf bread in English, and decorating their homes. The festive season starts in early December or the last years  late November,but the main day of celebration for Icelanders is Christmas Eve, December 24th.

Nutritional Advice

Thorbjörg's Top 10:

1. Spare your body of all added sugars - both the visible, invisible and artificial
2. Eat wholegrain foods - the body cannot use refined products such as white flour.
3. Don't shy away from certain fats - the right fats have very good health and slimming benefits
4. Eat good quality protein
5. Eat legumes, nuts, seeds and grains everyday.
6. Eat your way to inner and outer beauty with at least 600 grams of organic vegetables, fruits and berries everyday.
7. Drink 1½ liters of water, pure vegetable and fruit juices, and green or herbal teas everday. If you simply must have coffee or alcohol, then have it enjoying the best quality, not quantity.
8. Eat regularly - never skip breakfast. Several small meals is the way forward.
9. Eat balanced meals with healthy fats, quality protein, "whole" carbohydrates and vegetables - and of course as organic as possible
10. In addition to following numbers 1 through 9, it's still a good idea to take a multi-vitamin/mineral. If you want to take multiple food suppliments (ie. vitamins and minerals), it's best to consult your health professional first.

C A M E R A

Well I'm back:) reason for absence has been a lot of work here at the Guest House. This work at the Guest Houses  captures  my entire  mind, if it is going to be well done you have to give all  your physical force in it yes! nothing less. But September is pretty quiet month for tourism in Iceland, so I was going to blog a little take som time off :)


But  when I was going to take some  pictures to put on my blog I didn´t find my camera (Canon 400D) nowhere  in my house or elsewhere.
I turned all here at home up side down, No Camera - aarrrg :(  I must have left it  somewhere and someone has taken it, YES stolen My Camera...... I could have left it in the Car and do not lock the Car. I think it is the most likely explanation for this disappearance
I am quite upset about  this. I no longer have a camera that is just not acceptable ... Therefore I will hopefully soon buy me a new camera :-) 


Should I buy the same brand again? it was very good Camera, what do you think? tell me your opinion ;D

This is like my camera
Have a good  day
