 Norway

A traditional Christmas dinner for Norwegians often starts with porridge with a lucky almond hidden in it for some lucky person. Whoever finds the almond wins a prize.

Another Christmastime superstition involves a little gnome or elf called Nisse, who guards all the farm animals. If Norwegian children do not place a bowl of special porridge for Nisse, he will play tricks them.

    The union was ruled by a common king. Sweden gradually seceded from the union, but Denmark and Norway remained united until 1814.
