The tradition of eating this peculiar and smelly food (it has a strong odour of ammonia) arose in the West Fjords. The best time for catching skate is in the late autumn, and the pickling and putrefying process takes a while to complete, so it would be ready and available around Christmas time. Therefore it was perfectly normal that skate would be served on Ţorláksmessa. This tradition has slowly spread all over the country, and now there are many people who look as much forward to eating skate on Ţorláksmessa as they do to eating hangikjöt, ptarmigan, turkey, ham or steak on Christmas Eve.
