Tomte with Goat

It is a mid-winter day on an arctic farm. The light is from a distant lantern. The shadows are soft. The barn is dark. It is quiet and calm.

In Scandinavia during the Romantic Era, it was a tomte who delivered Christmas gifts.

Earlier, tradition held that it was a Julbock (or Yule goat) that delivered Yuletide gifts. Some parts of Scandinavia still hold this tradition.

Here, they both sit for a much needed rest!

Tomte with Squirrels

Tomte with Squirrels

It is late afternoon on an autumn day. The sun hangs low near the horizon and bathes everything in an eerie orange glow that seems to come from everywhere. The trees have lost their blanket of snow, but a thin smooth sheet still clings to the ground.

Tomtar had a deep affection for all animals and often provided treats for animals around the farm. Here one sits among Scandinavian squirrels, who are greedily devouring the pine nuts he has provided.

The sentiment for the card echoes our own alarm at how quickly the season has arrived.

Itʼs almost Christmas already!
Wishing you the happiest holidays!”
