A Norwegian Nisse is, according to folklore, responsible for the protection and welfare of the home.
He (or she) often wears a bright red hat. He resides in the pantry (or barn) and watches over the household. He is responsible for the care of any animals in the home. The Nisse has an enormous capacity for work, but will not tolerate anyone’s interference. ;-)

The Nisse require very little of the humans they work for. They demand only the love, respect and trust of the family, and a bowl of "julegrøt" (Christmas porridge) with butter, on Christmas Eve. 

A Home with a Norwegian Nisse is a Happy Home!
