Hurðaskellir - Yule lad

December 18 – Hurðaskellir (Door-Slammer)

The seventh of the Yule Lads comes on the night before the 18th of December and departs for home on the 31st of December. He was known to be the loudest one, slamming doors, especially during nighttime.

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