 If you are familiar with Icelandic folklore  at all, chances are that you have heard about our 13 "Santas" or the Yule Lads. This wonderfully illustrated book by Brian Pilkington offers a unique insight into the legend and origins of Grýla and her 13 sons that in modern times give away toys and sweets to children 13 days before Christmas, but in the olden days they were a bit more mischievous. Read all about it and make the Icelandic Yule Lads your own!
