A 'tomte' or 'nisse' is a mythical creature from Nordic folklore much associated with the winter solstice and Christmas time. They were mischievous domestic spirits who protected farmsteads and their environs, particularly during the night. There are also old folklores in which they were believed to be 'shapeshifters' or a power attributed to witches.
