Giljagaur - Yule lad

December 13

Giljagaur (Gully Gawk) is the second Yule Lad who comes to town on the night before the 13th of December and departs for home on the 26th of December. Gully Gawk was known to hide in gullies waiting for an opportunity to sneak into cowshed and steal the froth of the milk buckets.

The next to arrive is Stúfur (Stubby).
