What is Skammdegi?

Skammdegi in Icelandic means dark winter or short sunlight winter. December 21 is the shortest day in Iceland. The sunlight is from 11am to 3pm only. Listhús í Fjallabyggð is located in Olafsfjordur, north Iceland where is rounded by mountains. So during December and January, the sun never can raise up higher than the mountains. Resulting, the lands are always covered by a mysterious reflective lighting. To push up the spirit, people eager to light up the house with Christmas lights and joy with 13-Yule Lads (Icelandic Santa Claus) until 6 January. The sun climbs up bit by bit until the first shinning line shows on the peak on January 21 and the sunshine reaches the ground until the end of the month.
