Iceland
冰岛



Icelandic children were once told to behave or they would be eaten by a pair of ogres that lived up in the hills. The characters were considered to be so terrifying that a public decree banned the use of these stories to scare children into behaving.
冰岛的孩子们曾经被告知,如果表现不好就会被住在山上的食人魔夫妇吃掉。由于“食人魔”形象太过恐怖,冰岛颁布了一项公开法令,禁止用这个故事来吓唬不听话的小孩子。


Instead of talking about the ogre couple, parents instead started telling stories of the ogre’s children, the Jolasveinar, who are bad, but not nearly as evil as their parents. Jolasveinars were originally said to play tricks on people and steal food, but now they are responsible for giving gifts to children. Bad children don’t get presents though, they get potatoes or other items that remind them that they weren’t forgotten, but don’t deserve real presents.
父母们不再讲食人魔夫妇,转而讲他们俩的孩子(Jolasveinar)。食人魔小孩很坏,但不像他的爸妈那样邪恶。据说食人魔小孩经常捉弄人们,还偷食物。但他们现在负责给孩子们发礼物。坏孩子们虽然得不到礼物,但他们得到土豆或者其他物品,这是用来告诉他们,他们没被遗忘,但不值得得到真正的礼物。
