Icelandair Welcomes February with Sweetheart Packages and Sweet Traditions
COLUMBIA, Md., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Icelandair's most popular packages for winter travel are still available for February bookings. The Iceland Getaway is a flexible package including air and hotel plus an a la carte selection of day tours or romantic dining options. The popular Honeymoon Express features an evening visit to the Blue Lagoon and dinner at Laekjarbrekka, one of Reykjavik's most charming restaurants. Call your professional Travel Agent or Icelandair at (800) 223-5500 or visit www.icelandair.com or www.icelandair.ca. This weekend, as people wait with bated breath to learn the fate of winter and the groundhog prepares to leave his burrow, the children of Iceland are gleefully anticipating Bun Day, traditionally celebrated the Monday before the beginning of Lent. Little ones try to wake up before their parents and run into their bedrooms waving homemade wands decorated with paper and ribbons, demanding "Bolla, bolla" ("bun, bun"). These delectable and delicate cream puffs come in a variety of shapes and sizes and may be filled with jam or drizzled with chocolate. The children playfully whack their parents with their wands to indicate the number of buns they expect to receive. A few weeks later, just after we've lavished our sweethearts with Valentines, housewives in Iceland gear up for the grand gestures of Housewives' Day. But before you get your hopes up, ladies, think twice about adding this to the North American calendars. This 19th century custom required the husband to serve his wife coffee in bed. That was it. Today's more romantic Icelanders have replaced flowers for the coffee. Icelandair offers service to Iceland from Boston, New York-JFK, Minneapolis-St. Paul (seasonal), Orlando Sanford, Halifax (beginning April 21) and Toronto (beginning May 2). Connections through Icelandair's hub in Reykjavik are available to more than 20 destinations in Scandinavia, Great Britain and Continental Europe. Additional information about fares and packages is available at www.icelandair.com or www.icelandair.ca.
