December has finally rolled in, which means for many of us, it is officially the start of Christmas. Now, without guilt or feelings of prematurity, we can decorate our homes in glittering fandangles, stick The Pogues on our speakers and begin devouring chocolate and smoked lamb as though its going out out of fashion. Ah, Christmas in Reykjavík—don’t you ever change!

Last night saw the city’s second major snowfall, and once again, locals and visitors awoke to see their fair capital completely blanketed in the white stuff. Whilst not matching the incredible snowfall in Akureyri—the highest on record since the 1960s—Reykjavíkings can count themselves fully in the winter spirit. Look around, after all… it really is beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Take a look below at some of the photographs taken this morning in the capital.
