In Norwegian we call Father Christmas a "Nisse". Here you see a group of them who seem to be off skiing..... I hope that all of these "Father Christmas's" are back from skiing before Christmas.
It looks like it will continue snowing, and that Stavanger will have a white Christmas, it is 13 years since last that happened.

A Nisse, what an interesting name. I hope a nisse visits you.

I remember them from Denmark; don't forget to put the rice dish out for them.

They are gorgeous!!!! I went wild in Drobak (sorry for the o) in December 1999, there were so many nisse I could have bought a whole suitcase! I would love to have one of those! It's nice to know that Christmas will be white, especially so far up north!

I don't know much, but I would have thought a white Christmas would have been the usual in Stavanger. Hmmm...I probably should catch up on my reading (or Googling!)...

I'm glad there are so many nisse as there is a lot to do and very little time!

Love the crowd of Nisse! Waist deep snow for Christmas is not the rule?

I loved seeing the Nisse, altogether ready to go out. I'm sure they'll be back for Christmas.

Love the way you've framed this shot - or cropped it. Great Father Christmases...
