Quite an interesting and short read to see how other cultures celebrate Christmas, integrating their previous traditions

Updated review: our oldest son (almost four years old) was actually interested in the book this year. He memorized all the treats and reminded us we needed to read each night leading up to Christmas. The nicknames for the yule lads took on some extra hilarity with him involved.

This yule lads are a bit creepy but also hilarious, and this is a nifty little book leading up to Christmas. I was reminded of how good skyr is, too.

Das Buch ist wirklich sehr niedlich illustriert, und nicht nur perfekt für kleine Kinder sondern auch für die "großgewordenen" Kinder. Ein echtes kleines Schmuckstück.
