Christmas isn’t just a time for presents, cookies, and holiday cheer. It is also known as 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. At first glance, this monster may seem random; however, the viewer learns how the importance of wool production, the absence of Santa Claus, and a respect for cats drove Icelandic folklore to create such a gruesome Yuletide critter. Part of the "Monstrum" series.
