Þorrinn, pronounced „Thorrinn“ in English, means Frost or Winter.

It is the forth winter month (begins on the first Friday after January 19th) in the old Icelandic calendar that was developed in the 10th century.

The exact origin of the name Þorri is unclear, however it has long been identified with Thor (Þór) the God of Thunder in the Norse mythology.

Þorrablót (Thorrablot) is an Icelandic midwinter festival celebrated every year during the month of Þorri (Thorri). The calendar is not in official use any more but still today some Icelandic holidays and annual feasts are calculated from it and now the month Þorri started on the 24th of January 2020 and then Icelanders sit down during the month of Þorri and eat Þorramatur (food of Thorri).
