I recently discovered a book about Kravelenisser, the little elves that
take over Christmas in Scandinavia. I grew up in
Copenhagen with my
mormor, grandmother, and every December we would put these little elves
all over the house. When I moved to America I took many of these elves
with me and taught my four children all about the Danish elves. we would
faithfully put them all over the house. When their school friends
visited they would be spellbound all the elves that lived in our house.
Yes, I still put them up in my home and have on previous Origamibears
issues shared some of the Kravelenisser from my childhood.
The book is called "Nisser Her, Der og Alle Vegne" ( Nisser Here,
There and Everywhere). I purchased it from the writer whose name is
Anders Hjorth-Joegensen. The book is wonderful and full of
fantastic pictures of all the nisser created by Federik Bramming. When
Anders sent the book he included 2 large sheets of Kravelenisser, the
originals by Frederick. (copies) . I share them here with you.
