Kertasnikir, Saturday 24th December

The final Yule Lad arrives today. He is Candle-Beggar, and is regularly to be seen trailing children around in order to try and steal their candles. It is worth noting, however, that modern-day wax candles would not satisfy Candle-Beggar's craving...he much prefers the old-fashioned smokey, sputtering candles made of tallow...because you can eat them !
