June 17: Happy Icelandic National Day!

Iceland’s Independence Day is celebrated every year on June 17, commemorating the founding of the Republic of Iceland in 1944. June 17 is the birthday of Jón Sigurðsson, the leader of the Icelandic independence movement in the 19th century.

To celebrate Denmark’s Independence Day, the bells ring in unison. This day is an occasion marked by great joy and national pride. Music has a special place during celebrations and parades, and the streets are brightened up with musical performances and parades.
