Iceland’s (Lego) Yule Lads – Askasleikir

20131216-200459.jpg

Askasleikir (Bowl-Licker) This naughty little fellow hides under beds waiting for someone to put down their ‘askur’ (a type of wooden bowl with a lid used in days gone by), which he then raids for scraps of food. Askur are difficult to find these days, and Askasleikir has had to take some tips from Þvörusleikir and Pottaskefill to fill his belly. Askasleikir arrives on December 17 and leaves on December 30.
