This is posted for a friend of mine. Please respond to her.

I am an Icelandic filmmaker seeking written material, research papers
about the New Years Eve Bon Fires, in Brennur in Iceland. I am
particularly interested in any modern anthropological research or writing
on this ritual.
Information in regards to similar practices in Europe or South
America from any period would also be most helpful.
Thank you, Hrafnhildur Gunnarsdsttir <>
