    Beer was prohibited in Iceland from 1st January 1915 till 1st March 1989. However, the restriction applied to only "strong beer", with an alcohol content of 2.25% or more from 1935. This is the reason why many Icelanders celebrate 1st March as Beer Day!

    Author Ian McEwan helped his son with an A-level essay about one of his novels, Enduring Love. His son's teacher disagreed with his interpretation of the novel. So the boy got a very low mark.
