Hey there weirdos, happy holidays and a merry Christmas to you all! That's right, it's another Christmas Special of It Gets Weird! In this one, we discuss the fascinating mythology of Icelandic Christmas - from the sorceress troll Gryla, to the pesky Yule Lads, and finally the "Christmas cryptid," the Yule Cat. We talk about the dark mythologies wrapped up in Christmas like so many presents, plus how this terrifying Icelandic legend shifted to be...a bit jollier over time.
