Finnish Household Spirit

Also known as Koti-Haltija, Kotihaltia

Spirits of the Home

These are domesticated Haltija. Like English brownies, they are secretive but benevolent and love to help out, particularly on the farm.

One looks after the barnyard, another cares for the mill, yet another supervises the farmhouse. You get the idea.

Just don’t upset them. Pretend not to notice. Oh, and remember to accidentally leave food out — they do expect to be fed.
