Icelandic Jólasveinar 7

What was that horrible noise?

What was that horrible noise?

Min hears an alarming sound.

Slam!

Slam!

The seventh Yule Lad to come is Hurðaskellir, the door-slammer who comes on December 18th!

.

Crumbses!

Crumbses!

Min has put the curly-toed shoes out once again…and some cookies.  By the look of the crumbs in the plate it appears that door-slammer enjoyed the cardomom cookies. This time Min is going to find a large agate from Haida Gwaii in her shoe.

  1. I bet the door slammer loved those cardamon cookies – Those curly toed slippers are sweet. Wonder what Min will think of the agate chunk left in one of her slippers !!!

  2. Door slammer! I think we have one of those visiting here in the middle of the night sometimes which means I have been unjustly cursing my kids!
    Min looks suitably alarmed, just how I feel in the middle of the night when doors slam inside.

    • Kids who mimic the Jólasveinar are supposed to grow out of it eventually. Since the Yule Lads are part troll, it is not surprising that they have bad manners. Hurðaskellir seems to be a particularly good teacher.

  3. How can we get any sleep around here with all those doors being slammed like that? Love those little shoes, and what a great shot of Hurðaskellir winding up to slam that door there, I got goosebumps and could literally feel the rush of air from that door slamming!
