Playing Cards – Yule Lads
The Yuletide-lads, Yule Lads, or Yulemen, are figures from Icelandic folklore who have become the Icelandic version of Santa Claus.
The Yuletide-lads are said to “come to town” during the last 13 nights before Christmas.
Here are the ‘official’ thirteen Yule Lads in the order they arrive (and depart).
Stekkjarstaur, Giljagaur, Stúfur, Þvörusleikir, Pottaskefill, Askasleikir, Hurðaskellir, Skyrgámur, Bjúgnakrækir, Gluggagægir, Gáttaþefur, Ketkrókur and Kertasníkir.

Chill the Icelandic Gabbro-rocks in a freezer for at least two hours.

The drink is chilled without being diluted.
Wash them rocks and let them dry before placing them back in the freezer.
Nine Gabbro-rocks in each package.
Warning: Excessive alcohol consumption may impair you’re judgement.
Be careful not to swallow the rocks.
