Christmas Gnome Symbolism

Christmas Gnome Symbolism

Here in Germany they have a tradition involving gnomes, and I was wondering if you could shed some light on Christmas gnome symbolism, specifically the origin of a certain tradition held this time of year in Germany.

Here they have these ornaments that I guess represent their idea of what gnomes look like.

Anyway, on Christmas Eve people whisper a wish to the gnome and on Christmas day it is granted!

I just want to know, if you know or maybe know someone who does, about the history of the tradition of whispering wishes to Christmas gnomes on Christmas Eve.

Thanks!
