Christmas Decor - Finnish Christmas Elves

Christmas elves, Tonttu in finnish, are vey popular christmas decorations in Finland.

Christmas elves help Santa Claus to design and make the wonderful toys and gifts he brings to children. They were said to have other duties as well. Some elves take care of Santa's reindeer and keep his sleigh in good condition, ready to fly through the skies on Christmas Eve. Others help Santa keep his naughty and nice list in order, and some elves guard the secret location of Santa's village. Elves make sudden appearances in the days before Christmas, to keep an eye on each children and see which of them are behaving well and obeying their parents. They are believed to be Santa's secret agents and report their findings back to him. People believe that the elves live on the Korvatunturi mountain in Lapland, Finland.
