    Iceland tradition the day before Christmas - rotten fish


    In Iceland ,Christmas is celebrated on the 24th. And at 18:00 hours on the 24th, Christmas starts, and after dinner, presents are opened.


    But the day before Christmas, there is a tradition, to eat ,what is called - Rotten Fish - or rotten/decayed stingray/skate which is a traditional Icelandic dish.


    And in many homes in Iceland , it is forbidden to cook it ,because of the huge rotten smell.


    So some go to other places to cook it , and here it is cooked and served in a automobile Garage company.


    The smell and odor of this fish is so overwhelming, that I think it affected the camera i was videotaping this on.
