Santa´s Evil Mother is named Grila — in the picture above you can see the bag at her side — it is filled with naughty children who she is taking home to enjoy with perhaps a glass of merlot and a sprig of parsley.
Gila has thirteen elves — young boys who represent various forms of impishness verging on evil, but they are nothing compared to her cruel kitty-cat. Kitty, (not sure of her name or even is she has one), likes to hunt for small children and if she catches a child, she plays with it llike a normal-of-this-world cat would play with a mouse, and then she kills the child.
Fortunatley, if a child recieves new clothes at Christmas time, they are protected from Grila´s evil feline. Let´s hope that in spite of the terrible economy, parents in Iceland will at least buy new socks for their little ones.
The students in the local schools around Klaustrid have been creating the most wonderful Grila dolls, some of which I’ve copied into this post.
