Hurðaskellir - Yule lad

December 18

Hurðaskellir (Door-Slammer) is the seventh Yule Lad who comes to town on the night before the 18th of December and departs for home on the 31st of December. Door-Slammer was known to be the loudest one, slamming doors, especially during nighttime, waking people up in the process.

The next to arrive is Skyrgámur (Skyr-Gobbler).
