Icelandic Jólasveinar 6

Askasleiker

Askasleiker

Min has been advised to leave out a little treat for the Yule Lad along with her shoes.  She thinks cookies might be a good treat and gets busy in the kitchen…cardamom cookies, yummy!

Askasleiker reaches for the Askur.

She puts her shoes out once again…this time with cookies…

Coral!

Coral!

The sixth Yule Lad to come is Askasleikir, also known as bowl-licker – he comes on December 17th!  Min is excited to get a gift at last – a pile of coral from Stykkishólmur!

  1. Coral in Iceland? Makes it sound like a North Atlantic atoll. I am surprised it is to be found there. Min certainly looks pleased with her present. And I expect that Askasleikir is very pleased with Min’s delicious cardamom cookies.
    Did Min, Constance and Patience go to Stykkishólmur when they visited in the spring?
