Danish Nisse - Gnome
One of the main Christmas characters in Denmark is a mischievous gnome named Nisse. Nisse would live in the lofts of old farmhouses and enjoys playing jokes, but also being very helpful if the farmer and his family treated him well.
Nisse would generally wears grey, woolen clothes, a red hat, red stockings, and clogs.
It is still customary to leave him a bowl of rice pudding or porridge with butter, sugar and cinnamon on Christmas Eve to keep him sweet and prevent him from playing too many horrid jokes on the family - he can get very grumpy if the family forgets!
But usually Nisse is kind and helpful and enjoys being good to the children and helping on the farm. .
