Suits both male and female Vikings, and all ages: for those who still believe in Santa, and who dress up as Santa!
Before the Christianisation, pagan Yule celebrated by Vikings and Germanic peoples was little resembling, if not completely unlike the modern New Year's holidays. So was the Vikings' Santa. In the darkness of the past centuries, his true name was lost. They must be close to the truth in Iceland, where old traditions have not been forgotten, considering their Santa a descendant of the mountain trolls. Alas, the Vikings' Santa was a typical bad guy - in short, he was a vice versa to a modern Santa Claus, who decides who's been naughty or nice, and doles out presents or punishments accordingly.
He could appear in a home with his bag, just as modern Santa does, but he never gave gifts... quite the contrary - he required animal sacrifices from people. The arrival of this bearded dude meant he was kinda underpaid within a year. However, according to legends, he always provided his help and protection in return.
