Beware Falling Trolls

After a while the novelty of Trolls, Huldre, Fossegrim, Nøkken and Nisser wear off. They become as common place as strangers that you meet on the street. If you live in Norway long enough your body develops antitoxins against these creatures.

Warning: Constant exposure can be dangerous and may result in an overactive imagination


Have a relaxing Sunday everyone. Take your imagination for a walk, but look out for falling trolls.

This was very cool. I love this song, it was haunting and beautiful. Do you have the name?

It's fascinating that the mountains in Norway all contain the word for troll. Trolls have always been one of my favorite folklore creatures.

That was a fascinating feature! My grandmother's parents were Norwegian, she was born in Nebraska on a homestead. So I have Norwegian blood but know so little about Norway. I wonder how all these strange stories originated?
