Iceland has recently launched a new tourism campaign which via a catchy karaoke song called “The A-Ö of Iceland”, challenges tourists to get to grips with its notoriously difficult-to-learn language. Working through the 32 letters of the Icelandic alphabet, the song covers common words and phrases in the language.
Performed by Icelandic comedian Steindi Jr, the song, The A-Ö of Iceland, helps teach the difference between a torfbær (turf house) and a bílaleigubíll (hire car) and why you should always remember to take your sundskýla (trunks) to the sundlaugar (swimming pool).
The Iceland tourist board has also released the below video of tourists attempting to sing along…

Airports during the holiday season are generally filled with disgruntled people facing delays, lost luggage and other mishaps. So Canadian airline, WestJet decided to use this moment to treat weary travelers with a Christmas miracle.

Then with more than 150 WestJet employees they set about playing Santa’s elves, gathering personalized presents and delivering them to the Calgary airport before the unsuspecting passengers landed. At the baggage claim the passengers received their holiday miracle…
This however was not WestJet’s first attempt into spreading airport Christmas cheer. Last year, the airline had created a Christmas themed flash mob, complete with dancing elves, in the middle of an airport…
I would also like to take this opportunity to wish all my readers a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here’s a lovely remake of “Little Drummer Boy” by Pentatonix to bring this last Ramble of the year to a close. 😎
