Ketkrókur - Yule lad

December 23

Ketkrókur (Meat-Hook) is the twelfth Yule Lad who comes to town on the night before the 23rd of December and departs for home on the 5th of January. Meat-Hook was known for being crazy about meat and he would use a hook to steal a smoked lamb hanging from the rafters.

The next and last to arrive is Kertasníkir (Candle-Stealer).
