Festivals in Iceland

Hi all. Today is the day we celebrate the men and women who work on Boats ships and anything that floats. Every sailor is now ashore . Because we are a island and our main domestic product ,is the fish we produce. We have been to war ,becuase of the fishing rights . And we did beat the British Empire,in ,what was called the - Cod War. They sent big war ships ,against our few and small ships. Shots where fired,bust mostly the British rammed our ships. These wars where from the 1950s to the 1970s. But in the end ,the British Empire was defeated.
Here you can the history of the Cod Wars.
