For some people, it might seem odd to go to Iceland when it is as dark and gloomy as it gets, but wait until you see the mysterious tradition to lit up the gravestones at cemeteries​ around the country, among many others - Rejkjavik's Lágafellskirkja church. The custom is a symbolic one during this period when the days are the shortest in the year. You will see this during the miraculous Christmas time, which is another reason to visit Iceland now!
