Jólahúsið


"House of Christmas"

Several customs related to Christmas exist only in Iceland. The thirteen yule men are a case in point, as well as their parents, Grýla and Leppalúði. The family looks more like a group of trolls than the Santa Claus known to most children in the world. Jólahúsið will inform you of traditions like these, and more. The custom of Icelandic children to put their shoes in the bedroom window thirteen nights before Christmas is explained, as well as the story about the Christmas cat. According to folklore, every person who doesn't get a new piece of clothing for Christmas is supposed to be fed to the Christmas cat. At Jólahúsið, decorations from Germany, the USA and from Iceland can be bought all year round.
