Askasleikir - Yule lad

December 17 – Askasleikir (Bowl-Licker)

The sixth of the Yule Lads comes on the eve of the 17th of December and departs for home on the 30th of December. He was known to hide under beds when people would place their “askur,” a plate used for all meals. He then stole the askur and ate from it.

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