Stúfur - Yule lad

December 14 – Stúfur (Stubby)

The third of the Yule lads comes on the night before the 14th of December and departs for home on the 27th of December. He was known for being unusually short and for stealing pans so he can eat crust lefts on them.

The next to arrive is Þvörusleikir (Spoon-Licker)
