Julinessen, Christmas Elf

This Christmas, add a Scandinavian holiday tradition to your home. In Sweden and Norway, Julenisse doesn’t come down the chimney at night, but through the front door. After eating a Christmas bowl of porridge on Christmas Eve, he delivers the presents directly to the children, usually leaving them at the foot of their beds. During the winter, he also takes care of a farmer's home and children and protecting them from misfortune during the night. In Norway, Julinesse is also the unofficial Ambassador of Peace!

Julinesse is hand knit and stuffed to sit on your mantle, as a special decoration to your table or add ribbon and hang him on the tree. He sits about 7 inches tall.

Due to the fuzzy beard, Julinesse would not be appropriate as a toy for children who still put things in their mouth. Hand wash in cool water and allow to air dry.
