Today heralds the arrival of one of the saddest Yule Lads:
Þvörusleikir, The Spoon-Licker:
Þvörusleikir is lean and thin because he subsides only on the food left stuck to long-handled wooden spoons that he steals known as Þvörur. I say he is sad because it makes me sad to think that this poor guy is stuck sucking spoons for nourishment when some of his brothers have it made. Heck. eating burnt pie crusts is better than sucking spoons.
