Christmas in Reykjavik

I like Christmas in European countries. It always looks a little bit more tasteful than what we do in the US. Don't get me wrong -- I like all the American lights. But there is just something *right* about how decorations are done in Europe.



Here some men are taking a truck laden with pine trees through Laugavegur street in Reykjavik.




They put these trees up with little lights on stores.



I like the window displays in Europe too. Here is a little coffee shop which I visited for a wonderful latte.



The streets are tastefully decorated with lights. You can see Hallgrimskirkja church looming in the background. This church was is meant to look like a volcanic eruption, which is fitting when you consider how much of Iceland is an interplay of elemental forces -- tectonic plates, volcanoes and ice.



And here is the church again
