#452

Traditional meaning of troll in your country.
Are the ones you make part of some tradition?


#453

We have trolls yes, and tusser, like elves,
But the christmas troll is called a nisse, its more like a dwarf, with the classic santa hat.
Its not connected to the christianity, but the original celebrate witch is the lightfest of course, Jòl. Sun turning. Wich christians stole.:blush:. We dont say christmas, christian messe either, we say Jul, Jòl. And Julenisse. Not saint claus. The nisse lives around the forest, like elves, trolls, and hide on the barn, so some set out a bowl of porridge for the small nisse on the stairs, and its eaten in the night. Probably neighbour cat or fox likely but.:smile:.
Its all become a big pot mix of old mythological, heden and christian traditions.
