Christmas Gnomes are a fabulous Christmas decoration treat and will add happiness and your cheer to your home at Christmastime.
Over the years there have been many different Christmas decoration trends. We’ve had pineapple based decorations and christmas trees of all colours, to name a few.
But the hot Christmas decorating trend of 2020 and likely to be in the weirdest Christmas ever of 2021 is Christmas Garden Gnomes. But where did they come from?
It all dates back to Scandinavia many years ago where people believed that creatures known as elves were actually house gnomes warding evil away from the home. The elves took care of you if you were good but tended to play tricks on you if you were bad.
Elves\House Gnomes were always linked to magic and mystery but by the mid-1800’s their true nature had started to be realised. They existed simply to help Father Christmas through his heavy task each year. The tradition of Christmas Elves came about.
And to this day the nisse and tomte remain a bright and happy addition to Scandinavian homes at Christmas.
Let’s look at some to make our homes bright and cheerful too.
You’ll love ’em!
