Iceland’s (Lego) Yule Lads – Kertasníkir

20131224-001629.jpg

Kertasníkir (Candle-Stealer) The last to arrive, Kertasníkir used to follow children in order to steal their candles, back in the days when children had playing cards and candles for Christmas, and when candles were made from tallow. These days, candles are made from wax, and can make Kertasníkir ill if he eats them. Now, he just looks at their flickering flames, and occasionally forgets, meaning you may still find teeth marks in your candles. Kertasníkir arrives on December 24 and leaves on January 6.
