Joan Dahl has designed and painted the above sled inspired by one of the most popular Norwegian Christmas songs for children called På låven sitter Nissen med sin Julegrøt <– Click on the song's title to the left to hear this fun music.
Nisse enjoynig his "Julegøt" with music played by the mice.
More “facts” about the Nisse:
Nisser are some small Elf type "Santa Claus looking" cute creatures. According to the Norwegian folklore, a Nisse is wearing a red knitted cap and has long beard. He is possibly the best known creature in Norwegian folklore. Even today, some people believe that he exists. From Norwegian rural areas there are lots of legends about his life and his duties. I have seen serious "normal" people claiming that they have seen Nisser and their footsteps in the snow! The farmers believe that having a Nisse living in their barns will bring them luck and good harvests. If they are so lucky having a Nisse, they prepare food for him, especially at Christmas time and place this in the barns. And it's always eaten up by the next morning!
If the farmers take good care of their "personal" Nisse, he will jump in the moving carriage to continue living with the farmer should a farmer purchase a new farm. The word Nisse is originally not a Norwegian word, but has a foreign origin. So who knows, Nisser may even live in your country if you just know where to look for them?
“Documentation” shows that this mysterious little fellow comes out of the mountains for a twelve-day period during the Christmas season. He will come to a certain farm at that time. If he is treated kindly by the people on the farm, he will remain there for that full time. Then he will disappear as suddenly as he came.
The Jule-Nissen seems to love all the animals and is said that he has the power to bring good luck to people and good health to the animals, unless he is treated badly by his “hosts”.
