Advent Family Fun

It is Desember 11th. Grandma and grandpa have invited their  children and families to their cabin a few km outside Selfoss. There they will spend the weekend baking gingerbread cookies( and maybe a house), making Laufabrauð, playing boardgames and outside in the snow. This has been a family tradition for a few years now. It is around 3 in the afternoon and the sun will be setting soon. The kids were about to enjoy their cupcakes and hot coco after their playtime when they notice a strange creature lurking outside the window. They rush outside sure and hoping this might be Stekkjastaur( one of 13 Icelandic santas and the first one to come to town) on his way from the mountains to give children candy in their shoes while they sleep. Of course the grownups run out after them with their cameras knowing the "creature" is actually uncle Jón dressed up in raggedy clothes with a beard and red hat and a bag full of little treats :)

    Thanks dZyner! The story came to me later after I had finished the room. The environment felt so close to home to me and the story is something I can relate to :)
