Oh, to be in Iceland on Husband’s Day…

Today is Bóndadagur, or Husband’s Day, when wives and girlfriends in Iceland pamper their men. Bóndadagur also marks the beginning of the old Icelandic month of Thorri, during which Thórrablót mid-winter feasts are held across the country.

In many households, Bóndadagur is celebrated by eating the traditional Thorri food: dried fish, smoked lamb, putrefied shark and soured blood and liver pudding along with other soured meat products, including ram testicles. The delicacies are often washed down with a shot or two of brennivín, Icelandic schnapps.

Seems to me it would take more than a shot or two of schnapps to get those “goodies” down…
