Folklore Profile: Huldra

"Huldra" - Theodor Kittelsen, 1892
By far the most prominent folklore creature in my gallery, I figured I would talk a bit about huldra, and go much more in depth than I've previously done. I've looked through many different stories and supposed "true" anecdotes from back when people still believed in this creature to get as accurate information about her as possible.
The word "huldra"
The word "huldra" most likely stems from the old Norse verb "hylja", which means "to hide" or "to cover", although some speculate that the word may also be related to the sorceress and seer Huld from Norse mytology. It's difficult to know for sure, as stories about the huldrefolk have been around since at least the Viking Age, but were first written down in the 1840's, and a lot of information gets changed, added and omitted when stories are passed around by word of mouth. Huldra is primarily the Norwegian word for the creature, althou

New Contest Announced! :D
And the new contest is..."New Guardian Anna"! :D
I bumped into this on tumblr recently:https://pitchxannawarmsmyblackheart.tumblr.com/post/181587575957/guardian-anna-au, and I thought it would be neat if we did a contest inspired by that. I asked permission first for this, and permission is granted! Yay! :D
Anyway, all you have to do is make Anna a Guardian if she was in the Rise of the Guardians movie. And all these instructions below are really important. :) Nod  You can say what:
. She is the Guardian of.
. Her relationships with each of the Guardians and Pitch. 
. Her weapons and special powers.
. Her signature shape and color.
. How she became a Guardian and why she was chosen.
. What her palace looks like and where it's located.
. What her Guardian name is. For example, North is called Santa Claus, Bunny is called the Easter Bunny, Tooth is called the Tooth Fairy, Jack is called Jack Frost, Sandy is called the Sandman, and Pit
