Askasleikir - Yule lad

December 17

Askasleikir (Bowl-Licker) is the sixth Yule Lad who comes to town on the night before the 17th of December and departs for home on the 30th of December. Bowl-Licker was known to hide under beds waiting for someone to put down their “askur,” (a plate used for all meals), which he then licked clean.

The next to arrive is Hurðaskellir (Door-Slammer).
