New York, NY & Reykjavik, Iceland (PRWEB) December 26, 2013
Iceland Naturally and Mila are bringing Iceland to you this New Year’s Eve. Reykjavik’s massive fireworks display, made for and by the people, will be shared with the world on New Year’s Eve and into the New Year live online at http://www.icelandnaturally.com.
At midnight Icelandic time (7:00 p.m. EST / 4:00 p.m. PST) on the night of December 31, the entire population of Reykjavik (nearly 200,000 people!) will create a beautiful fireworks show over the city. There are no fireworks restrictions in Reykjavik, meaning anyone and everyone can participate in the colorful New Year celebration. After midnight, the nightclubs and pubs are open for business, with dancing and celebrating lasting well into the morning.
The brilliant display is made even sweeter by the fact that the sale of Icelandic fireworks benefits a good cause. The booming beauties are primarily sold by the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue (ICE-SAR) in order to raise funds for the courageous group of volunteers.
New Year's Eve in Iceland is a lively celebration that includes many traditions. Festivities start with a family dinner, followed by bonfires (brenna), where family, friends and neighbors gather to enjoy the warm fire and celebrate with music. According to traditional Icelandic folklore, there are several magical traditions that happen on New Year's Eve: cows talk, seals take on human form, the dead rise from their graves and elves move houses.
