--The customs are warm in Iceland
if the weather is cold.
It is said to be a custom with the people of Iceland
, when the meal is over, for the guests to kiss both the muster and mistress of the house, thanking them for their kindness.
At the meeting and parting the kiss is the universal solution.
On entering a family, the visitor must salute all according to seniority or station, beginning with the highest.
At his departure he reverses this, and the lowest is taken leave of first.
