What Is A Gonk And Where Did They Come From?
Before we wrap up, we feel compelled to point out that gonks have been around for far more than a year!
Although for most Brits the love-affair only began very recently, these mischievous gnomes have been a mainstay of Nordic folklore for centuries.
Called Tomte in Swedish, Nisse in Norway and Denmark and Tonttu in Finnish, they are easily identified by their long beards, short bottoms, cherry-round noses and tall hats. Not to mention their lack of any other facial features!
A little marmite in their appeal, there is little doubt that they are growing a place in our communal hearts as the gonk invasion returns to British shores for another year.
