About: The gnome, nisse (Danish), tomte(Sweedish), tomtenisse, or tonttu (Finnish) 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, having a long white beard, and wearing a conical or knit cap in red or some other bright color, often with a full beard; dressed in the traditional farmer garb, consisting of a pull-over woolen tunic belted at the waist and knee breeches with stockings. The tomte is accompanied by another mythological creature: the Yule goat (Julbocken). The pair appear on Christmas Eve, knocking on the doors of people's homes, handing out presents. The tomte/nisse is also commonly seen with a pig, another popular Christmas symbol in Scandinavia. In today's new puzzle we feature two cute tree decorations in the shape of these mythological creatures.
