Gáttaþefur....Door-sniffer is number eleven. He has a nice big nose and remarkably he never gets a cold. He can smell the good smells of Christmas from afar. Today he can detect the lovely smell of Laufabrauð and there is the fragrance of the Hangikjot that hangs in the rafters. He tip-toes to the kitchen door, so that he can delight in all the good smells of Christmas cooking.
As he is standing there in ecstasy, the housewife walks by and startled by his presence screams. Gáttaþefur unperturbed smiles and raises his nose higher.
