Þvörusleikir - Yule lad

December 15

Þvörusleikir (Spoon-Licker) is the fourth Yule Lad who comes to town on the night before the 15th of December and departs for home on the 28th of December. Spoon-Licker was known for being tall, thin, and for stealing þvörur (long wooden spoons) to lick them, hoping to taste something sweet.

The next to arrive is Pottaskefill (Pot-Scraper)
