Play • 25 min

What I’m about to tell you is so scary that in 1746, parents were officially banned from terrifying their children with these stories by public decree!
This episode, we are going to Iceland where they do it big with not just one, but 13 Father Christmases in the form of the Yule Lads along with their ogress mother, Grýla and the terrifying Christmas Cat. Find out why you better wear those new socks your aunt got you or you will be EATEN...

Song before credits: Björk - Jólakotturinn (Christmas Cat), 1987
