Would like to introduce you to our Nisse named Sven. You can visit him at the museum located at Heritage Square 4402-47 Avenue, Red Deer or visit us at
The Nisse is a make-believe character from Norwegian stories. He is a friendly gnome who likes to be around farms and animals. He is also around a lot during the Christmas season.
Our activities for you on this day of the Children’s Festival include a coloring page, a story and a craft where you can make your own Nisse. Enjoy!
Once upon a time, there was a Nisse named Snippen. He lived on a farm but was not happy so he was looking at moving to another farm. A little girl lived on the farm and her mother got sick. She was worried that she couldn’t help her little brother and make porridge like her mother did and her brother would be hungry. Snippen felt sorry for the little girl so he decided to stay on the farm and help her. He liked porridge too!
