Gonk

The adorable little creatures are popping up all over! You’ll find them in bedding, tree decorations and more. They’re not just for Christmas; these gnomes have their roots steeped deep into Scandinavian mythology where they first appeared as neutral spirits that could help out anyone who needed it with tricks or treats at Halloween time (or any other day).

Can you have gonks all year round?

Yes! They are perfect for using all year round.

Why do people have gonks?

Gonks believe in sacred land and home, so if their family or someone else disrespects it then they will be angry. They love playing tricks on people because of how much fun is has made for them when others suffer!

What’s the difference between gonks and gnomes?

Whilst Gonks look like gnomes, the main difference is that they originate from Scandinavian folklore, are essentially their version of Santa Claus, and you do not see their eyes.

Are gonks still popular?

The annual tradition of placing gonks around the home is popular in Scandinavia and across North America. These small creatures with hats over their eyes are typically seen carrying items such as sledges or skis, which they use to travel during winter months when roads soften into snow-filled fields.

What are gonks called in Norway?

Gonks are called Nisse in Norway and Denmark. In Finland, they are called Tonttu and in Sweden they are called Tomte.
