Christmas Gnome Balin Caricature.
A Nisse or Gnome, is a mythological creature from Nordic folklore today typically associated with the winter solstice and the Christmas season. It is generally described as being no taller than 90 cm (35″ in), having a long white beard, and wearing a conical or knit cap in red or some other bright color.
Post-Christianity, the heathen tradition of nisse/gnome is now associated with Christmas today.
The Christmas Gnome is accompanied by another mythological creature: the Yule goat.
The pair appear on Christmas Eve, knocking on the doors of people's homes, handing out presents to the children.
Gradually, commercialism has made him look more and more like the American Santa Claus.
