[2015/12/20 14:17:15]  Mosseveno Tenk: now we talked about the 'followers' of nicholas, often pagan creatures that had been tamed by nicholas and were allowed to roam for a brief time to scare children during the midwinter season
[2015/12/20 14:17:30]  Mosseveno Tenk: now pere noel, to me, has the most disturbing follower of them all.

[2015/12/20 14:18:44]  Elleon Bergamasco: Father Whipper... Whipper snapper?
[2015/12/20 14:18:57]  Joey (joey.aboma): Doesnt eveyone?

[2015/12/20 14:21:29]  Mosseveno Tenk: now we left off in scandinavia, where mr. holmes was telling us how sixth graders got to dress up like nuttipukki and go scare the kindergarten class
[2015/12/20 14:21:40]  Mosseveno Tenk: which means finland is an awesome place to grow up
[2015/12/20 14:21:49]  Darlingmonster Ember: charming!
[2015/12/20 14:21:51]  Jimmy Branagh: SOunds like it
[2015/12/20 14:21:59]  Baron Klaus Wulfenbach (klauswulfenbach.outlander): /me chuckles
[2015/12/20 14:22:13]  Mosseveno Tenk: and here we have an antique postcard showing the christmas goat, scaring little kids at home
[2015/12/20 14:22:14]  Myrtil Igaly: Look how the parents look happy in the background
[2015/12/20 14:22:15]  Lady Sumoku: /me wonders what the High Schoolers do to the sixth graders.
[2015/12/20 14:22:25]  Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): That... is disturbing.
[2015/12/20 14:22:25]  Joey (joey.aboma): Glad to see somestill remember the true meanie of Chrsitmas
[2015/12/20 14:22:29]  Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Hehe Myrtil
[2015/12/20 14:22:38]  Magda Kamenev (magdalena.kamenev): /me snorts.
[2015/12/20 14:22:42]  Mosseveno Tenk: the yule goat in scandinavia is a very ancient character, going back to prechristian times,
[2015/12/20 14:22:56]  Fauve Aeon: whispers: sper {{goat}}
[2015/12/20 14:23:02]  Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Hang on, does that goat have human legs?
[2015/12/20 14:23:04]  Mosseveno Tenk: which remeber, wasn't as long ago as other places, as finland wasnt' christenized utnil the 14th centry
[2015/12/20 14:23:18]  Mosseveno Tenk: we're not quite sure how it ties in
[2015/12/20 14:23:37]  Joey (joey.aboma): Don't that just get your goat?
[2015/12/20 14:23:48]  Mosseveno Tenk: in ancient times, the last sheaf of grain harvested was set aside because it had magical properties. it was called the 'julbocken'
[2015/12/20 14:23:52]  Mosseveno Tenk: or yule goat
[2015/12/20 14:24:08]  Darlingmonster Ember: The Yule Goat is not that old, nor does he have his own pinup calendar....
[2015/12/20 14:24:14]  Mosseveno Tenk: the straw goat, here, which is still made to this day for the holidays
[2015/12/20 14:24:32]  Joey (joey.aboma): oooooo pinup goats (licks chops)
[2015/12/20 14:24:38]  Fauve Aeon: /me frowns
[2015/12/20 14:24:45]  Lady Sumoku: Aww cute
[2015/12/20 14:24:46]  Mosseveno Tenk: we know thor drove a cart pulled by 2 goats, but its conjecture to point to that as an origin
[2015/12/20 14:25:00]  Lady Sumoku: Thor had class.
[2015/12/20 14:25:05]  Mosseveno Tenk: now the yule goat, like krampus, or theotehr followers,
[2015/12/20 14:25:09]  Joey (joey.aboma): Thor = Santa??
[2015/12/20 14:25:13]  Joey (joey.aboma): nnahhhh
[2015/12/20 14:25:14]  Mosseveno Tenk: was a street mummer show
[2015/12/20 14:25:24]  Mosseveno Tenk: orignally, the goat would demand gifts
[2015/12/20 14:25:39]  Mosseveno Tenk: somehow this changed in the late 18th and early 19th century
[2015/12/20 14:25:46]  Mosseveno Tenk: when the goat became the gift giver
[2015/12/20 14:25:56]  Fauve Aeon: O.o
[2015/12/20 14:25:59]  Fauve Aeon: nuuuu
[2015/12/20 14:26:01]  Lady Sumoku: Now that is just wrong.
[2015/12/20 14:26:10]  Mosseveno Tenk: i'll show you another antique postcard
[2015/12/20 14:26:21]  Mosseveno Tenk: here the goat is bringing gifts, rather than scaring the kids
[2015/12/20 14:26:27]  Joey (joey.aboma): Extortion maybe?
[2015/12/20 14:26:29]  Mosseveno Tenk: and the kids don't seem frightened of him anymore
[2015/12/20 14:26:36]  Myrtil Igaly: ummmm
[2015/12/20 14:26:38]  Joey (joey.aboma): Kids got the goat on him
[2015/12/20 14:26:50]  Elleon Bergamasco: perhaps he's wearing pajamas..
[2015/12/20 14:27:05]  Mosseveno Tenk: the goat in the 20th century passed his name, as the giftgiver, onto their national versions of Santa Claus
[2015/12/20 14:27:07]  Lady Sumoku: They seem surrounded by goats.
[2015/12/20 14:27:15]  Mosseveno Tenk: Jultomte in Sweden
[2015/12/20 14:27:17]  Joey (joey.aboma): Probably mom and dad dressing up as goats

[2015/12/20 14:28:36]  Dr. Henry Jekyll (nyanka.jinx): Hm. It seems I've missed the first two as well.

[2015/12/20 14:31:25]  Mosseveno Tenk: remeber i asked you to imagine western europe like a bowl, wtih a drain at the bottom located at Rome
[2015/12/20 14:31:56]  Darlingmonster Ember: /me tries to do the math of Rome draining Europe
[2015/12/20 14:32:02]  Mosseveno Tenk: and the bowl is filling up, romanizing, or christenizing, whichever way you want to look at it, the whole of europe, and flushing out the native cultures
[2015/12/20 14:32:03]  Ceejay Writer: does that drain counter or clockwise?
[2015/12/20 14:32:19]  Mosseveno Tenk: so wehn we looked for our christmas monsters, we looked at the fringes, like scandinavia
[2015/12/20 14:32:30]  Mosseveno Tenk: and up in the mountains, like the alps and the pyrenees
[2015/12/20 14:32:33]  Mosseveno Tenk: but
[2015/12/20 14:32:40]  Mosseveno Tenk: there's one character that survived intact
[2015/12/20 14:32:52]  Mosseveno Tenk: he was not tamed by nicholas, per se
[2015/12/20 14:33:00]  Mosseveno Tenk: nor was he christenized
[2015/12/20 14:33:09]  Mosseveno Tenk: and that is, the elves. the short elves.

[2015/12/20 14:33:39]  Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): The short bus elves?
[2015/12/20 14:33:40]  Mosseveno Tenk: these characters are so overlooked, that if you walk into an otherkin forum portraying yourself as one, they will laugh you out, or think you are trying to make fun of them
[2015/12/20 14:33:45]  Mosseveno Tenk: short bus elves, yes
[2015/12/20 14:33:53]  Dee Wells Dagger (promiscute): Good Lord
[2015/12/20 14:33:59]  Mosseveno Tenk: you can google image their names if you don't believe me

[2015/12/20 14:35:47]  Mosseveno Tenk: the germans were so intimate with them that some of their names were preserved,  like King Goldemar of Castel Hardenstein
[2015/12/20 14:36:00]  Ceejay Writer: Sensing a Nightvalian theme
[2015/12/20 14:36:02]  Myrtil Igaly: that's an elf?
[2015/12/20 14:36:04]  Mosseveno Tenk: or Hödekin of Hidlesheim, who wore his hate down low on his eyes
[2015/12/20 14:36:24]  Mosseveno Tenk: the germans called them gnomes or kobolds
[2015/12/20 14:36:35]  Mosseveno Tenk: if they lived on a ship, they were called klaboutermann
[2015/12/20 14:36:36]  Ceejay Writer: Kobolds I've heard of
[2015/12/20 14:36:47]  Mosseveno Tenk: and in Cologne, the heinzelmann
[2015/12/20 14:36:56]  Mosseveno Tenk: to which there is a monument to them this very day
[2015/12/20 14:37:15]  Mosseveno Tenk: the colners were lazy folk, as the heinzelmanner did all the work
[2015/12/20 14:37:33]  Mosseveno Tenk: until one day the bakers wife wanted to see what they looked like, and spread dried peas on the steps
[2015/12/20 14:37:46]  Mosseveno Tenk: they triped on them, waking her,, and she took her lantern up to see
[2015/12/20 14:38:05]  Mosseveno Tenk: and that was the last anyone ever saw of them. now people in cologne must do their own housework
[2015/12/20 14:38:20]  Mosseveno Tenk: in the slavic east, they are the domovoi

[2015/12/20 14:39:21]  Joey (joey.aboma): Wonders why Italy picked a witch to celebrate the holidays
[2015/12/20 14:39:24]  Mosseveno Tenk: and i will make a strong arguement for the egyptian god Bes, as aslo one of us

[2015/12/20 14:39:46]  Mosseveno Tenk: yes, the lares. you will see them portrayed as miniature adults, as is towards the roman artistic ethic of beauty

[2015/12/20 14:41:15]  Mosseveno Tenk: but maybe not enitriely, for farmers would accuse their neighbors of harboring a brownie if they thought he was getting a little too prosperous, and complain to the priest
[2015/12/20 14:41:38]  Ceejay Writer: brownies are pests
[2015/12/20 14:41:48]  Mosseveno Tenk: and when the scandinavians came to america in teh mid 19th centuyr, the elves came with them

[2015/12/20 14:44:16]  Mosseveno Tenk: the next sighting was in 1857
[2015/12/20 14:44:22]  Mosseveno Tenk: in Harper's Weekly
[2015/12/20 14:44:45]  Mosseveno Tenk: wthe poem was called 'the wonders of santa claus' and it should google.

[2015/12/20 14:47:17]  Myrtil Igaly: he's kind of like old Popplefot and the elves are us urchins in the workhouse
[2015/12/20 14:47:17]  Lady Sumoku: It's a Festivus miracle!
[2015/12/20 14:47:20]  Fauve Aeon: aw, they are cute, look at the little hats...
[2015/12/20 14:47:22]  Mosseveno Tenk: so they lived in an 'astonishing castle' on top a hill
[2015/12/20 14:47:47]  Mosseveno Tenk: yes, the red hat, carried over from the traditional little people, who tended to dress in scarlet and grey
[2015/12/20 14:48:25]  Mosseveno Tenk: the next elf sighting is in 1873, on the december issue of Godey's Lady's Book, which i dived into the archives and found for you after the ball last night

[2015/12/20 14:49:13]  Darlingmonster Ember: :D
[2015/12/20 14:49:21]  Ceejay Writer: So elves exist because of the social media of the day.

[2015/12/20 14:49:23]  Mosseveno Tenk: a tales that takes on more detail every time it is told
