Icelandic Jólasveinar 4

Þvörusleikir

Þvörusleikir

Consternation in the Hitty Cupboard – Constance can’t find her potatoes – she was going to make them into Latkes.  She can’t find her big spoon either,  and Min can’t find her shoes.

Þvörusleikir 2The fourth Yule Lad to come is Þvörusleikir, also known as spoon-licker – he comes on December 15th! Maybe he is a shoe, potato and spoon-stealer too!
