The Christmas Nisse
A Family Christmas Tradition
by Rikke Melgaard Liffiton

A delightful Christmas story for families. The Christmas Nisse presents a Danish Christmas tradition about the magical little Nisse. These mischievous creatures live at the North pole with Santa. On the last night of November, they roam through the cold to find their way to your home. You know they have arrived when their little door appears. The Christmas Nisse is on a mission to create and collect Christmas Joy to make Santa's sleigh fly. How do you help the Nisse, you ask? Bring this beautiful tradition into your home and find out.

Rikke was born and raised in Denmark but is now living on Vancouver Island, BC with her Canadian husband and their two sons. With an understanding of both Danish and North American Christmas traditions, she has married the tradition of the Danish Christmas Nisse to the North American Christmas celebrations to create a fairy tale come true. “Nærvær” is a Danish word that is very dear to Rikke. Translated it means "being present in the moment". All small gestures of kindness and love can create memories that can be held in our hearts and in our thoughts. Rikke notes that even though The Christmas Nisse has made some cultural changes traveling overseas to North America, the thought behind The Christmas Nisse has remained the same; they are here to remind us to create special memories filled with Christmas Joy.
