The Gully Imp.

The Second Yule Lad to come is Giljagaur, sometimes called Gully Imp or Gully Gawk..he is big and strong and travels through gullies and ravines to arrive on December 13th! He is very fond of the Christmas Cat. The Hittys’ Little Cat is somewhat alarmed – the Christmas Cat has an evil reputation.
