Bjúgnakrækir (Sausage-Swiper) – In the olden days, Bjúgnakrækir hid in the rafters of turf houses and snatched sausages that were being smoked. These are called Bjúga and were thick sausages made out of horsemeat or lamb. Nowadays, Bjúgnakrækir eats any sausage he can get his hands on, especially the delicious ones in Plysur. Bjúgnakrækir arrives on December 20 and leaves on January 2.
