Icelandic Jólasveinar 9



Min has put her red boots out once again, leaving a special treat for the Yule Lad…In the morning she is delighted to find two lumps of lava – one red and one black – from the Eldfell volcano in Iceland!   The cat thinks there must have been something pretty nice in the empty dish, and decides to follow the greasy trail…



a trail of sausages.

A trail of sausages.

The ninth Yule Lad to come is Bjúgnakrækir, the sausage-stealer who comes on December 20th! The cat has a second breakfast after catching up with him.

The Jólasveinar tradition is explained in the Icelandic Yule/Jól website here.
