On the night of 12th of December, the first of 13 Yule Lads comes to town. Yes, you read that right. Instead of the single Santa Claus or Father Christmas, Icelanders have 13 Yule Lads.
Times are changing! Back in the day, most Icelanders ate the same type of food during Christmas. But now, while some hold on to tradition, others like to try something new every year.
