Thvorusleikir, Wednesday 15th December

Today's Chrismas miscreant coming to town is...Spoon-Licker. His Icelandic name is derived from "Thvorur", a long-handled wooden spoon, and the verb "sleikir", to lick. He is extremely thin, and probably suffering from malnutrition. As we are gradually introduced to the Yule Men, one by one, you will see that they have some favourite places they like to hang out...and, the kitchen is high on that list. So, when going about the daily culinary chores, it's wise to use those eyes in the back of your head to watch the spoons !
