Advent song for December 1: Tonttu, Finland

This is the perfect song to start with. Not only is it from Lapland (well, Finland anyway), it is also absolutely lovely (especially from 1:50 onwards), and – this is my favourite part – it is about Tonttu the Christmas Gnome. Why don’t we have a Christmas gnome in the UK? Perhaps I will start a campaign.

There’s an English translation of the lyrics here (scroll down).
