Ash Wednesday is today, 27 February, and on that occasion children in Iceland dress up in costumes and go out in the community, usually in small groups, visiting companies and singing in exchange for candy. This morning companies in Akureyri had fun listening to children singing all kinds of songs and in return giving them treats.
