Like I’ve told you in the previous Stocking stuffers post, we have this crazy Christmas tradition that involves 13 trolls (or Yule Lads) like they’re called. Each night in the two weeks before Christmas, one of the Yule Lads will come down from the mountains. They’ll hide and cause trouble around the homes and farms of Iceland. Each will remain for two weeks, leaving one at a time in the two weeks following Christmas. I’ve already told you about the first 8 so here’s a little about the last ones.
Bjúknakrægir or Sausage Swiper arrives on the 20th of December. He would hide in rafters and snatch sausages that were being smoked.
The ninth was Sausage Swiper,
a shifty pilferer.
He climbed up to the rafters
and raided food from there.
Gluggagægir, Window Peeper in English (creepy, I know) was a snoop who would look through windows in search of things to steal.He arrives on the 21st of December.
The tenth was Window Peeper,
a weird little twit,
who stepped up to the window
and stole a peek through it
Gáttaþefur or Door Sniffer has an abnormally large nose and an acute sense of smell which he uses to locate laufabrauð (a Icelandic Christmas bread). He arrives on the 22nd of December.
Eleventh was Door Sniffer,
a doltish lad and gross.
He never got a cold, yet had
a huge, sensitive nose.
Ketkrókur, Meet Hook uses a hook to steal meat and arrives on the 23rd of December.
Meat Hook, the twelfth one,
his talent would display
as soon as he arrived
on Saint Thorlak´s Day.
Kertasníkir or Candle Beggar used to follow children in order to steal their candles (which in those days were made of tallow and thus edible). He arrives on the 24th of December.
The thirteenth was Candle Beggar
– ´twas cold, I believe,
if he was not the last
of the lot on Christmas Eve.
And now on to the stocking stuffers for dad. I got all my ideas from Amazon.
