Icelandic Cultural Tidbit

I found this article and the accompanying video about paganism in Iceland interesting. Here is a quote:

Members of Ásatrúarfélagid, a religious association which honors the old Norse gods, celebrated Iceland’s Sovereignty Day on Monday by honoring the country’s protective spirits, thelandvaettir as described in Snorri Sturluson’s Heimskringla. 

One website says the pagan organization has 1000 members.
