Joselyn wasn’t too keen on multiple choice in high school. She vividly remembers the first biology exam she passed by only the skin of her teeth, which dragged her overall average down into the embarrassingly low 90s (she doesn’t want to talk about it). After swearing off any high school or university courses that required multiple choice tests, Joselyn managed to get an English degree by sweet-talking her professors into offering only essay-style exams. Needless to say, this did not exactly endear her to her peers. This rocky start smoothed out in time, though, and after tumbling down a black quiz hole one day while putting off job hunting, Joselyn realized her hatred of all things a-b-or-c had faded and she actually enjoyed dreaming up new ideas for questions and dangerously correct-sounding answers. You won’t find her quizzes an easy ride, but Joselyn just wants to make sure you’re really testing your knowledge.
Part of Yuletide tradition in Iceland is getting visited by the 13 Yule Lads, or Jolasveinar, who descend one by one from mountains and cause mischief on the nights leading up to the holiday. Well behaved children get toys from the Yule Lads in their shoes, while bad children get a rotten potato. As if getting a rotting potato wasn't bad enough, originally the Yule Lads, whose names include "Spoon Licker," "Door Peeper," and "Sausage Sweeper," were troublemakers who also caused chaos around the house they visited. The Yule Lads are the offspring of an evil ogress who collects misbehaved children in a large sack to take back to her cave to boil and eat. As if all this is not traumatizing enough, there is also a big, scary Christmas Cat, or Jolakotturinn, who devours anyone who does not receive new clothing for Christmas. So in Iceland, unwrapping those socks from your grandmother would be something to be excited about. At least you could sleep easy knowing you were not going to fall victim to a hungry demon cat. Maybe this is how they tricked children into being grateful for all gifts-even lame socks?
