    I'll let you know when I get there.
    Since one of the very first entries was a god I too wanted to enter a god!
    But most of our gods are these days portrayed as characters in american films for kids...

    Nisser, I did in December (which kinda is their season as they fill the same niche 'Elves' do in American mythology) and Trolls are more of a Norwegian/Swedish thing....

    Which pretty much leaves Holger Danske (~Ogier the Dane) who sleeps in the cellars of Kronborg Castle. Legend has it that when peril threatens the kingdom he awakens and saves the day.

    It's hard to remember where they come from when they've been dubbed. ;)

    What do you mean? I'm right here.
    Smurfs originated in comics. Those, of course, aren't allowed, either.

    A few hours left for entries. No one has done trolls, Nessie, or unicorns yet.
