In European folklore, gnomes are small creatures that live in the earth. They guard rich treasures and have a bad reputation for being deformed or dirty looking with hair like weeds sticking out all over their bodies!
The typical story goes something like this: A miner was digging his way through an mountainside when he discovered some ore hidden below ground level. He picked up as much of it before leaving but left behind one rock too many which caused an earthquake to loosen more rocks from where they were sitting on top soil until finally everything fell down around him – including what seemed to be every last speckled-stone chip…but wait there’s still plenty more where those came from right?
What is the History Behind Gnomes?
From the very beginning, gnomes were considered to be good luck charms. They represent a small race of humanoid males who live underground and have been around for centuries in ancient Roman mythology as well as European tradition thereafter.
What is the Meaning of the Gnomes?
Garden gnomes have been a part of our society for centuries. They once were thought to actually help the crops grow and protect your garden from pests, but now we know better! Gardeners used them at night when others would be sleeping because they believed that these small beings could keep away bad spirits or bothersome creatures like witches who want nothing more than trouble in return for their mischief done on Halloween night.
The old world belief was true – gardens needed protection against all sorts of problems including thieves seeking hand-me down tools while farmers looked upon these gold miners with envy before realizing what harm might come if one walked among his fields unthinkingly after dark so close.
In those days, no doubt many folks would have gladly traded places for a day and gone back home to tend their crops or work in the field where they were raised as opposed to facing an uncertain future on some far away mountainside just trying not show any sign that you’re from there because everyone knows how dangerous it is.
