Icelandic term or phrase: hringarnir voru settir upp
091:23 Á jólanóttina voru hringarnir settir upp, eins og ráð
091:24 var fyrir gert. Daginn eftir batt Jón á sig skauta og fór
091:25 út að Hvammi. Þóra kom út í dyrnar, þegar hún heyrði,
091:26 að gest bar að garði. Henni datt sízt í hug, að það væri
091:27 Jón. Hún var búin að hugsa sér að vera stillt og köld og
091:28 láta ekki á neinu bera, þegar fundum þeirra bæri saman.
