They are very similar to Satyrs from modern Greece. They can be big or small and live underground. For most of the year they undermine the tree that hold the universe- Yggdrasil. Near Christmas they are set free and while the tree repairs the damage, the Callicantzari cause chaos, but stay away from house that emit light from inside. It is believed that any child born on twelfth night will become a Callicantzaros.
