jólakötturinn song info: - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yule_Cat - http://www.shinybattery.sugarcube.net/specials/jolakurtinn.htm - Jólakötturinn - The Yule Cat - Hvít Er Borg Og Bær (1987) Icelandic lyrics:

Þið kannizt við jólaköttinn 
- sá köttur var griðarstór 
Fólk vissi'ekki hvaðan hann kom 
eða hvert hann fór 

Hann glennti upp glyrnurnar sinar 
glóandi báðar tvær 
Það var ekki heiglum hent 
að horfa í þær 

Kamparnir beittir sem broddar 
upp úr bakinu kryppna há 
og klærnar à loðinni löpp 
var ljótt að sjá 

Því var það, að konurnar kepptust 
við kamba og vefstól og rokk 
og prjónuðu litfagran lepp 
eða lítin sokk 

Þvi kötturinn mátti' ekki koma 
og krækja í börnin smá 
Þau urðu að fásína flík 
þeim fullorðnu hjá 

Og er kveikt var á jólakvöldið 
og kötturin gægðist inn 
stóðu börnin bísperrt og rjóð 
með böggulinn sinn 

Hann veifaði stélinu sterka 
hann stökk og hann klóraði' og blés 
og var ýmist uppi í dal 
eða úti' um nes 

Hann sveimaði, soltinn og grimmur 
í sárköldum jólasnæ 
og vakti í hjörtunum hroll 
á hverjum bæ 

Ef mjálmað var aumlega úti 
var ólukkan samstundis vís 
Allir vissu' að hann veiddi menn 
en vildi ekki mýs 

Hann lagðist á fátæka fólkið 
sem fékk enga nýja spjör 
fyrir jólin - og baslaði og bjó 
við bágust kjör 

Frá því tók hann ætið í einu 
allan þess jólamat 
og át það svo oftast nær sjálft 
ef hann gat 

Því var það, að konurnar kepptust 
við kamba og vefstól og rokk 
og prjónuðu litfagran lepp 
eða lítin sokk 

Sum höfðe fengið svuntu 
og sum höfðu fengið skó 
eða eitthvað, sem þótti þarft 
en þad var nóg 

Þvi kisa máti' engan eta 
sem einhverja flíkina hlaut 
Hún hvæsti þá heldur ljót 
og hljóp á braut 

Hvort enn er hún til, veit ég ekki 
en aum yrði hennar för 
ef allir eignuðust næst 
einhverja spjör 

Þið hafið nú kannske í huga 
að hjálpa, ef þörf verður á 
máske enn finnist einhver börn 
sem ekkert fá 

Máske, að leitin að þeim sem líða 
af ljósskorti heims um ból 
gefi ykkur góðan dag 
og gleðileg jól - English Lyrics:

You know the christmas cat 
- that cat is very large 
We dont know where he came from 
nor where he has gone 

He opened his eyes widely 
glowing both of them 
it was not for cowards 
to look into them 

His hair sharp as needles 
his back was high and bulgy 
and claws on his hairy paw 
were not a pretty sight 

Therefore the women competed 
to rock and sow and spin 
and knitted colorful clothes 
or one little sock 

For the cat could not come 
and get the little children 
they had to get new clothes 
from the grownups 

When christmas eve was lighted 
and the cat looked inside 
the children stood straight and red-cheeked 
with their presents 

He waved his strong tail 
he jumped, scratched and blew 
and was either in the valley 
or out on the headland 

He walked about, hungry and mean 
in hurtfully cold christmas snow 
and kindled the hearts with fear 
in every town 

If outside one heard a weak "meaow" 
then unluck was sure to happen 
all knew he hunted men 
and didnt want mice 

He followed the poorer people 
who didnt get any new clothing 
near christmas - and tried and lived 
in poorest conditions 

From them he took at the same time 
all their christmas food 
and ate them also themselves 
if he could 

Therefore the women competed 
to rock and sow and spin 
and knitted colorful clothes 
or one little sock 

Some had gotten an apron 
and some had got a new shoe 
or anything that was needful 
but that was enough 

For pussy should not eat no-one 
who got some new piece of clothes 
She hissed with her ugly voice 
and ran away 

If she still exists I dont know 
but for nothing would be his trip 
if everybody would get next christmas 
some new rag 

You may want to keep it in mind 
to help if there is need 
for somewhere there might be children 
who get nothing at all 

Mayhaps that looking for those who suffer 
from lack of plentiful lights 
will give you a happy season 
and merry christmas

jólasveinar song info: - http://www.shinybattery.sugarcube.net/specials/jolasv.htm - Jólasveinar - Icelandic Christmas Carol - Radio Cassette Compilation How The Juice Stole Christmas (1995) Icelandic Lyrics:
Jólasveinar ganga um gólf með gildan staf í hendi móðir þeirra sópar gólf og flengir þá með vendi

Upp á stól stendur mín kanna níu nóttum fyrir jól
þá kem ég til manna

Upp á stól stendur mín kanna níu nóttum fyrir jól
þá kem ég til manna

English translation:
Yule-lads tread the floors
with a thick staff in hand
their mother sweeps the floors and spanks them with twigs

On top of a chair my pitcher stands nine nights before Christmas I head towards mankind

On top of a chair my pitcher stands nine nights before Christmas I head towards mankind

the yuletide-lads, yule lads, yulemen (icelandic) (jólasveinarnir) (jólasveinar) yule lads info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yule_Lads - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yule_Cat - starting on the 12th of december, the 'yule lads' come one by one in the nighttime to icelandic homes, where they leave a little gift in well-behaved children's shoes placed on the windowsills. naughty kids get a potato! in return, children might leave them some little gifts or snacks, like laufabrauð ("leaf bread"), a thin, crispy flatbread made specially at christmas time.



but these troll-beings weren't always benevolent gift givers; that came only with the popularisation of 'santa claus'. originally the 'yule lads' were troublemakers and that's how they got their peculiar names, as you can read about below with excerpts of the poem "jólasveinavísur" by jóhannes frá kötlum, each 'yule lad' is listed in order of the night he visits: the icelandic 'yule lads', known as “jólasveinar”, begin making their appearance 13 days before christmas arriving one by one each night and leaving small gifts for the children. 13 days of gifts as well as christmas gifts from santa,



the yule lads originated from icelandic folklore and were portrayed as mischievous trolls that would steal food and livestock and harass and scare the children. they are the 13 sons of a terrifying ogress named 'grýla' who is said to live in the icelandic mountains and  comes down at christmas time to capture naughty children, her favorite snack.



the early stories of the 'yule lads' and 'grýla' were used to scare children into behaving. however in (1746) a public decree was issued prohibiting parents from using these stories to frighten their children into behaving. they have since turned from their life of petty crime and harassing, but are still known to pull a prank or two:)



today the 'yule lads' enjoy bringing joy to the children instead of scaring them. starting 13 days before christmas eve one of the 'yule lads' will visit the children each night and leave a gift. children put a shoe in the window sill where the 'yule lads' leave the gift in. the children receive small gifts such as small toys, books or a piece of fruit. however if they were bad they get a potato in their shoe!



i loved learning about these interesting 'yule lads' and the quirky traits each one is said to have. basically they all steal something in some form or other and are quite naughty characters. here is a list of the 'yule lads' in the order that they arrive.



01. stekkjarstaur, “gimpy”



the first 'yule lad' stekkjarstaur, arrives on the night of december, 12th he is known to harass sheep but has trouble doing so with his stiff peg-legs.



02. giljagaur, “gully Imp”



giljagaur, is the second 'yule lad' who is known to hide out in gullies waiting for the chance to steal milk from the farmers cows.



03. stúfur, “itty bitty”



the third 'yule lad' to arrive, stúfur, is extremely short and known for stealing pans so he can scrape the crust out of them to eat. while his extreme shortness makes him the smallest of the 13 'yule lads' he is also known to be very kind and a favorite among the children.



04. Þvörusleikir, “spoon licker”



Þvörusleikir, arrives on the fourth day and is said to be a very thin 'yule lad' due to malnutrition. he is known for licking Þvörur (long wooden spoons) that were used to scrap the pots.



05. pottaskefill, “pot licker”



pottaskefill, visits on the 5th day, he is known to wait for a chance to steal pots that had not been washed so he could lick the food remaining inside.



06. askasleikir, “bowl licker”



askasleikir, shows up on the 6th day. you can find him hiding under beds waiting for you to put down your askur (a type of bowl with a lid on it) which he then steals so he can of course lick whatever is left in the bowl.



07. hurðaskellir, “door slammer”



the 7th 'yule lad' to arrive, hurðaskellir, enjoys making lots of noise. as his name says his favorite thing to do is to slam doors, especially at night.



08. skyrgámur, “skyr gobbler”



skyrgámur, has a love for skyr, an icelandic dairy product similar to yogurt. when he arrives on the 8th day you can find him sneaking into pantries and eating all the skyr from the skyr tub.



09. bjúgnakrækir, "sausage swiper”



the 9th 'yule lad' bjúgnakrækir “sausage swiper” hides in the rafters and steals sausages whenever he can, ideally though while the sausages are being smoked.



10. gluggagægir, “window peeper”



gluggagægir, “window peeper”, the 10th 'yule lad' was said to not be as greedy as the other 12 'yule lads' he mostly enjoys looking through windows and from time to time will steal a toy or two that he sees in the room.



11. gáttaþefur, “door sniffer”



day 11 brings gáttaþefur, “door sniffer” has an abnormally large nose which he uses to smell laufabrauð (an icelandic bread ate typically at christmas time) so he can try and steal a loaf or two.



12. ketkrókur, “meat hooker”



ketkrókur, “meat hooker” the 12th 'yule lad'  loves meat and does exactly has his name says, uses his hook to steal meat, preferably a smoked leg of lamb.



13. kertasníkir, “candle stealer”



kertasníkir, “candle stealer” is the last 'yule lad' to arrive. he likes to follow children around to try and steal their christmas candles which he then eats. - ketkrókur, “meat hooker” the 12th 'yule lad'  loves meat and does exactly has his name says, uses his hook to steal meat, preferably a smoked leg of lamb.



other 'yule lads' the 'yule cat' (icelandic: jólakötturinn, or jólaköttur) is a monster from icelandic folklore, that eats children, a huge and vicious cat said to lurk about the snowy countryside during christmas time and eat people who have not received any new clothes to wear before christmas eve. the 'yule cat' (jólakötturinn, or jólaköttur) has become associated with other figures from icelandic folklore as the house pet of the giantess 'grýla' and her sons, the 'yule lads' 


in modern times the 'yuletide-lads' have been depicted as taking on a more benevolent role comparable to santa claus and other related figures. they are occasionally depicted as wearing late medieval style icelandic clothing (only in some books and decorations), but are otherwise generally shown wearing the costume traditionally worn by santa claus.

list of 'yuletide-lads'
the 'yuletide-lads' are said to "come to town" during the last 13 nights before christmas. below are the 'official' thirteen 'yuletide-lads' in the order they arrive (and depart).
