2 thoughts on A song about the Icelandic Christmas Cat from Björk Petros says. Here you can listen to Icelands most famous singer Björk singing about the Icelandic Christmas Cat - and read the translation of the text from Icelandic to English. It was part of his childrens book of Christmas poems based on Icelandic folklore Jólin koma.
Icelandic Christmas folklore depicts mountain-dwelling characters and monsters who come to town during Christmas. Unlike other parts of the world where Father Christmas or Saint Nick is the only yuletide icon Icelandic culture depicts not one but 13 Christmas trolls. Apparently farmers threatened their employees with being preyed upon by the Yule Cat in order to encourage them to complete the processing of the autumn wool before Christmas.
Im not convinced that shes entirely human. Behave or a troll will terrorize you or a cat will eat you. The feline was made famous in a 1932 poem by Icelandic poet Jóhannes úr Kötlum.
Superstition was rife in Iceland in the past. No matter how old you are youre never safe from Icelands Christmas Cat. Grýla and Leppalúði are the parents of the 13 Icelandic yule lads.
