    Shortest day of the year - in Iceland


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Today is the shortest day in Iceland, says Icelandic native ander. On December 21 there is only 4 hours of sunlight across the country. 'Tomorrow, the day will get a little bit longer,' he said. The shorter days haven't affected people in Iceland though. 'Christmas is arriving, so people are just still shopping,' he said. He says he loves the shortest day in Iceland. 'That means it can't get any shorter, and then daylight here in Iceland will get longer. Now, we wake up and go to work in darkness, but in summer, we wake up in daylight and go to sleep in daylight,' he said.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer
