Welcome to Iceland and the Yule Traditions and Yule Lore found here. On these pages you will find some information about Yule traditions in ancient and modern times.
Jólasveinarnir, The Yuletide Lads, will visit these pages starting on December 12th, as you can see in the list at the left.
The Icelandic Jólasveinar leave small gifts for good children, who put their shoes on the windowsill at night.
The Jólasveinar will also leave a Cyber-gift for you each day, as they arrive in town from the mountains, where they live for most of the year.
We are using the English word Yule instead of Christmas as we want to emphasize the close connection the English and Icelandic languages had in the past when the tongues were essentially the same.
We hope you will enjoy your visit here and return often, as we will keep adding to Yule in Iceland.
Yule in Iceland is now a permanent year-round WWW-resident, except for the Yuletide lads, which keep their own schedule and start appearing on December 12th each year, and might make it back in 2012, who knows?
