Santa’s little helpers – known in Finnish as ‘tonttu’ – are an essential part of our Christmas. You come across them in many shapes and forms, on Christmas cards, or as handmade candles like these.

Everybody in Finland shares childhood memories of parents controlling children before Christmas, by telling them that the “tonttus” are everywhere, secretly looking through every window, to see whether children are good.
