The Icelandic Santa Claus Brothers

The Icelandic Santa clause consists of 13 brothers. Here are the first four rebels :-)

Icelandic children place a shoe in their bedroom window each evening in the 13 days before Christmas. Every night one santaclaus visits, leaving sweets and small gifts or rotting potatoes, depending on how that particular child has behaved on the preceding day. Each Santa has a specific idiosyncrasy and will therefore behave in a particular manner.

The first one has arrived! Stekkjastaur, or Sheep-Cote Clod, has made his way down from the mountains, peg legs and all…

Giljagaur, Gully Gawk is here! With a reputation for hiding in gullies and waiting for his chance to sneak into the cowshed to steal milk…keep your eyes peeled.

Stúfur or Stubby, is by far the shortest of the Yule Lads. Known for stealing pans to eat the crust out of them!

Þvörusleikir, Spoon Licker, is the fourth Yule Lad to journey down from the mountains! This sticky-fingered troll steals wooden spoons for the sole purpose of licking them...
