Jólabókaflóð Icelandic Christmas Box


Jólabókaflóð - (yo-la-bok-a-flot). The Islandic tradition that roughly translates to "Christmas Book Flood". The box contains:

  • 1 Full Circle Book Co-op mug
  • 1 Blind Date with a Book
  • 1 FCBC bookmark and 1 postcard
  • 10 Hot beverages (3 coffees, 7 teas)
  • 10 Individually wrapped international chocolates

In 1944, during the height of World War II, supplies were short in Iceland. But there was plenty of paper and almost everyone received a book that Christmas, because frankly there was little else.


Since 1944, Christmas Eve book giving has become a tradition. Icelanders, who tend to be avid readers anyway, stay up all night reading their new books and having snacks (usually chocolate) and drinking hot beverages.


To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Jólabókaflóð, the Full Circle Book Co-op hopes you enjoy our Jólabókaflóð Christmas Box, or give as a gift to a loved one.
