Who are the gnomes?

Under the New Year, you can find a gnome in every souvenir shop. Gnomes appear on Christmas trees, on shelves above the fireplace, next to the Christmas candles. Many gnomes under the New Year are not here. According to Norwegian beliefs, fairy-tale characters live everywhere. They help people with household chores. At us such helpers are called as housekeepers. At Christmas, it is customary to put porridge with a plate in the yard, so that the New Year gnome can regale. In Norway it is believed that if he does not treat porridge, then he will not bring the children gifts.
