who are they ????
((They work at night in the woods and sometimes in human dwellings, it is not sheer coincidence that the word gnome itself is derived from Kuba-Walda, which means ” home administrator” or “home spirit” in the ancient Germanic language. In rural areas these home administrators often live in the rafters of barns, where, if they are treated well, they keep an eye on the livestock as well as crops. Another variant of their name translates as “to put in order” or “do odd jobs” – with or without an apron.)))
makes note : Always treat a Gnome well .. *smiles*
