REYKJAVIK, Iceland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This New Year’s Eve, celebrate with Iceland Naturally as we bring the fireworks from Iceland’s capital to your computer screen. Visit www.IcelandNaturally.com on December 31 at 7 p.m. EST / 4 p.m. PST to watch Reykjavik’s massive fireworks display and welcome 2015 with a bang.
With no fireworks restrictions in Reykjavik, the city’s entire population (more than 200,000 people!) comes together to create this spectacular New Year’s Eve display. The majority of proceeds from fireworks sold in and around the city go to Iceland’s volunteer rescue group, Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue (“ICE-SAR”), which makes the celebration even more meaningful.
In Iceland, New Year's Eve festivities start with a family dinner, followed by bonfires (“brenna”), where family, friends and neighbors gather to watch the fireworks and celebrate the new year. Bars and restaurants stay open all night and, according to Icelandic folklore, several magical events happen: cows talk, seals take on human form, the dead rise from their graves, and elves move houses.
