Christmas isn’t just a time for presents, cookies, and holiday cheer, but the hunting period of Iceland’s murderous monster feline, the Yule Cat. This giant, fluffy cat towers over buildings, roaming the snowy countryside for human victims who have yet to receive new clothes before Christmas.That's an appropriately bloodthirsty video for my mood. So is my next activity, logging onto Star Wars: The Old Republic to defeat some mobs with my guildmates. That should relieve my stress.
Although at first glance this monster may seem random, in this episode you’ll learn how the importance of wool production, the absence of Santa Claus, and a respect for cats drove Icelandic folklore to create such a gruesome Yuletime critter.
See you tomorrow with more holiday content. Until then, enjoy these seasonal greetings.
