Gnomehomes and Martinmas

When days become shorter and nights are cold it is the perfect time to create some gnomehomes around the house for some little gnomes to gather in a cosy place. Each year before our Martinmas lantern walk we collect moos and bark and wood pieces and set up some gnomehomes. We add some tiny apples and rose hips to prepare a little gnome snack.

Es zipfelt ein Röckchen,
es klingelt ein Glöckchen.
Pantöffelchen klappen,
zwei Händchen die tappen,
es guckt ein Gesichtchen.
Was war das? - Ein Wichtchen!
