My sweet friend Elisabeth gave me the cutest Christmas Gnomes. This was my first introduction to them five years ago. All my gnomes or Tomte are from Sweden.

These adorable gnomes are now popular everywhere. They come in so many fun styles. So, let’s take a look at the wide array that I collected for you.

Background History of Gnomes!


And if you are curious about their history, let’s take a look at the story behind them.

Legend says, that you need to be nice to them so they are nice back. They originated out of Scandinavian folklore and were “house gnomes” who lived in or under the house. They would protect the children and animals from evil or misfortune. Until recently, they have taken on the role similar to the American Santa. In Norway they call them, Nisse.

I featured my gnomes in a fun Christmas post. I own a boy and girl gnome, and they will be sitting on a shelf this year in our home since I seriously need some decor that is cheerful and happy.
