Kjötkrókur.......Meat-hook jumps up on the roof and lowers his long meat hook down the chimney to snatch the Hangikjöt, that is being cooked for Christmas Eve dinner.
When the household notices that the meat is gone, they give chase to meat hook, calling and screaming at the top of their lungs. Kjötkrókur is limber and fast. He quickly hides behind a big bolder and sits down to feast on the stolen meat. Oh, bother! He just heard someone say "I see him hiding there...behind the big bolder" Now he needs to run again...just when he was about to take a big bite of the delicious Hangikjöt.
