I believe I’ve lastly discovered why these Scandinavian nations are all the time topping the worldwide happiness lists: they learn. So much. In Iceland they even have an occasion known as the Christmas guide flood and apparently it may simply turn out to be my favorite vacation. On Christmas Eve everybody offers everybody else books as items after which all 330,000 of them hunker-down, with good meals and grog, to learn. 

Properly, signal me up! Because it occurs, I have already got a non-public vacation that may be very very similar to this. On sooner or later over the winter break, I wish to lounge round in my pyjamas studying the books I obtained as items and consuming each scrumptious meals I can discover.


(At present on my nightstand. And I like to recommend it.) 

Though it’s additionally true that I’m usually thwarted. Different individuals produce other plans for vacation issues and introverts like me are instructed to only suck-it-up and make merry, dammit!

So I believe we bibliophiles and introverts want to order a day that the party-hardy crowd can’t hijack. Since they’ve already claimed Christmas Eve, let’s make the Canadian guide flood the final Friday in December. It’s chilly, it’s darkish, and we’re all exhausted from the vacation rush. What higher solution to have a good time surviving the season than by getting all hygge and curling up with a glass of wine and learn.

Wish to be a part of me? I’m positive a Canadian guide flood would make us all very comfortable.
