Pagan Viking Easter traditions from the 9th Century have strongly influenced modern Icelandic celebrations. The Vikings celebrated spring's arrival with bonfires, a symbol of the returning sun and the end of the long, dark winter. This tradition remains in Iceland on Easter Sunday.


Eggs symbolized new life and the Vikings decorated eggs with intricate patterns and symbols - a tradition that has been carried on in Iceland. Today, chocolate Easter eggs, known as Paskaegg, are hollow shells that are filled with all kinds of chocolate.


The Vikings were known for feasting and celebration. Families in Iceland still come together for traditional Easter meals.
