Iceland's 13 Naughty Yule Lads - A Christmas Tradition






Iceland?s Yule Lads have been called everything from the 13 Santa Clauses of Iceland to Christmas trolls. Technically, they're half-troll. These merry mischief makers have been a fixture on the Icelandic Christmas scene since at least the 17th century. Over time their image has morphed from that of the sons of child-eating ogres into a benevolent and more family-friendly holiday concept. During Iceland?s holiday celebrations, the Yuletide Lads bring the 13 Days of Christmas with them from their home in Dimmuborgir, North Iceland. These characters from Icelandic folklore have names that describe their unique personality traits, much like Snow White?s seven dwarves. But unlike the Disney character?s work companions, Iceland Yule Lads are definitely up to no good. Most of their activity revolves around causing mischief, pulling pranks, and eating or stealing food that doesn't belong to them. Lock up your cupboards and prepare to learn more about the Yulemen of Iceland.

Well behaved boys and girls get gifts or candy and bad children receive something awful, like rotting potatoes. But this isn't the biggest dan...
