Horses of Iceland and Christmas

December 14 2018 | General

According to legend, the 13 Yule Lads (or ‘jólasveinar’ in Icelandic) are the offspring of an awful child-eating ogress called Grýla and her good-for-nothing husband Leppalúði. Originally, at Yuletide, the Yule Lads came to town to steal food and terrorize children. Nowadays, they also leave presents behind in their shoes, starting 13 nights before Christmas.
