Heidi Herman - Live the Adventure of the Fairy Tale
The Legend of the Icelandic Yule Lads: After accidentally being seen by a human, Stekkjastaur finds he must rely on a young shepherd boy to keep his secret. He gives a gift just to protect his troll reputation, but the little boy's happiness made him happy as well. He learns that one of the greatest gifts you can receive is the joy in giving to someone else. One by one, the Yule Lads each take a break from his own mischief, and each one learns the happiness gained from gift-giving. Even from a source as unlikely as a troll, a selfish act wrapped up in the Christmas spirit can grow into something wonderful. Iceland's rich history of legends and folktales featuring a host of mystical creatures is reflected in this unique Christmas tale about trolls. This modernized version of the Icelandic Yule Lads brings new life to a very old story.
