Meeting of the NordicsEdit
At their regional meeting, the Nordics (and Estonia) congregate at Denmark's house to celebrate. Though the Nordics are celebrating, only Iceland seems to notice something odd. For one, he notes, Estonia is there, even though he isn't a Nordic country. Finland has been completely won over by the food that Estonia brought, and Estonia is, strangely, acting nicely towards Iceland. Moreover, their typical meetings are indoors and are quite formal, whereas they're meeting outside today and Denmark's already broken out alcohol. Norway still acts overbearing towards Iceland, which seems to be the only normal thing happening. Even stranger, Finland isn't putting a stop to Denmark's antics like he normally does.
He asks Sweden what's going on, while saying that he's thankful that Sweden is still acting like himself. However, he too is wearing a tiny party hat. Confused, Iceland wonders if he's actually the strange one, noting that his house is pretty far from the other Nordics'.
Cracking a party popper, Finland and Denmark offer Iceland cake and flowers, wishing him a happy birthday. Denmark explains that they let Iceland think that this was a meeting in order to throw him a surprise party. Still confused, Iceland says that it's not even his birthday, until Norway explains that today is the halfway point between Iceland's birthday and his. Resigned, Iceland lets them celebrate his "birthday", even though he secretly resents always being the youngest of the Nordics.
Seeing Iceland's clothes, Denmark asks him why he isn't wearing his normal sweater, a lopapeysa. Flustered, Iceland covers himself with his jacket, while the others joke around with him about his sweaters. Estonia remarks that the Nordics get along well, and concludes the episode.
