An assortment of things we have picked that will make your Christmas a little more Icelandic! Delivered to your door within days from the country of the 13 naughty Santas. A classic Icelandic Christmas novel, a book about the 13 Yule Lads and the fearsome Yule Cat, really nice socks and loads of festive luxury candy!
Originally published in 1936 as "Aðventa", Gunnar Gunnarsson’s novella has sold more than one million copies worldwide and is by far Iceland's most loved Christmas story.
The Good Shepherd is an inspiring tale about Benedikt, a simple farmer who every year risks his life to round up other people's stray sheep in the Icelandic highlands during the Advent with his loyal dog and an unusually perceptive ram called Eitill!
A charming Icelandic Christmas tale about the troll Grýla and her sons, the 13 Yule Lads. Aimed at children from 2 to 7 years old, and anyone who is still a child at heart. A wonderfully warm story despite all the snow.
Also includes an introduction to the Icelandic Christmas family and unique customs that occur during the holiday season in Iceland.
According to Icelandic folklore the Yule Cat is an overgrown ferocious feline that stalks the wintry Icelandic landscape preying on children! In this considerably more charming story, Brian Pilkington has lightened the character up somewhat by imagining what the Yule Cat is like today, now that he has become a moth-eaten, fleabitten, lazy old geriatric that is in need of a seasonal makeover.
This delightful story is ideal for children of all ages, just about anyone that loves cats, or indeed any motheaten, fleabitten old geriatric in need of a seasonal makeover that YOU may know!
Its a perfect Christmas Gift. My wife is going to love it.
