Skyrgámur - Yule lad

December 19

Skyrgámur (Skyr-Gobbler) is the eighth Yule Lad who comes to town on the night before the 19th of December and departs on the 1st of January. Skyr-Gobbler was known to be particularly fond of skyr, an Icelandic dairy product similar to yogurt.

The next to arrive is Bjúgnakrækir (Sausage-Swiper).
