Tomte or Nisse are Gnomes that take care of the farm and home. At Christmas you MUST leave a bowl of steaming hot rice porridge for them or they will play harmless tricks on you like letting the animals out or switching the salt and sugar. God Jul means Merry Christmas in Norwegian.

Tomten found the love of his life (under a mushroom) and on Dec.32 takes her on her annual ride on Gingerbread Gonstoffelson's moose. She responds with a kiss on his cheek.

Rien Poortvliet. I still have my mom's "Gnomes" book from when she was a little girl and look at it all the time.
