Up-Helly-A: In the Shetland Islands, Yule begins seven days before Christmas and ends at Antinmas the twenty-fourth day after Christmas. The Trows: Trolls are let free from their homes in the earth and saining is done. Doors are opened and a pantomimic chasing goes on to rid the area of Trows. People piously read the Bible and display iron. When day dawns after twenty-fourth night, the Trows or Grey-folk had vanished and the Yules are ended.
