The Hunderfossen Troll

In the Scandinavian countries simple folk have a vivid sense of the nearness of the supernatural on Christmas Eve. On Yule night no one should go out, for he may meet uncanny beings of all kinds. In Sweden the Trolls are believed to celebrate Christmas Eve with dancing and revelry. –Christmas in Ritual and Tradition, Christian and Pagan by Clement A. Miles
