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 !

Ketkrokur, Friday 23rd December

This fella is Meat-Hook, and he tries to procure various cuts, joints and steaks etc. without being discovered...hence the meat-hook, of course. The hook is usually on the end of a long pole so that it can either be poked through a window or wheedled down a chimney (as illustrated on the left) in order to whisk away the goods !

Gattathefur, Thursday 22nd December

This character is Door-Sniffer who, as you can see, is gifted with an abnormally large nose with which to sniff around doors (usually kitchen doors !) looking for tasty treats ! His favourite is "laufabraud" (leaf-bread), which is a thin and crispy wafer bread, usually deep fried in oil or fat. It is traditional to decorate the laufabraud with stencilled patterns before the frying takes place. There's usually a competition to make the best one ! Door-Sniffer has no interest in making them, he only likes to eat them !

Gluggagaegir, Wednesday 21st December

Now, here's somebody who's on the lookout for any sort of food or vittals left lying around. This is Window-Peeper, and you can occasionally see his hat and the rims of his heavy glasses poking up above the sill of your kitchen window, as he gazes longingly inwards at the various pots and pans, all hubbling and bubbling with tasty foodstuffs in the making.
