Nisse















I went to a local craft fair on Sunday and bought this little thing called a Nisse. He represents an elf from Danish folklore and is usually helpful but can also be mischievous and can play jokes during the holiday season. On Christmas Eve in Denmark, many families leave a bowl of rice pudding or porridge for him so that he is friendly to them and keeps his jokes within limits. I think he is great and will keep him in my kitchen in the hope of good luck this Christmas!

What a cute idea... Although if someone left me a bowl of rice pudding or porridge, it would have the opposite effect!
