Oh, your back from entering the Giveaway :o) I will start the story then.
The third Yule Lad is also the smallest one. He is Stúfur, also called Stubby or Itty Bitty. Stúfur is a favorite among a lot of the kids, maybe because he is closer to their size lol. I shouldn't make jokes about his size because Stubby is really sensitive about being the shortest troll in his family. With the long walk from the mountains that he has to do to bring presents to the children, his walk is a lot longer than the rest of the Yule Lads because the snow is so deep and Stubby´s legs are so short. Poor thing has such a hard time getting around in the snow.
Now Stubby is no different than his brothers when it comes to sneaking something out of the kitchen. The only difference is, he likes to eat the left overs on the stove. If you don´t get around to washing your dishes, Stubby will clean off the pots and pans for you....by licking them clean :o)
