    It is customary to express acknowledgement to the tomte by leaving him a bowl of porridge on Christmas eve. This is also a form of ancestral worship as the tomte has been linked to the soul of the dead. The tomte is reputed to especially favour a small cut of butter on top of his porridge.   The Tomtes’ Christmas Porridge was our other book (this book is still in print and rather reasonably priced, I would recommend ordering this one), and it treated tomtes as if they were house brownies. On Christmas Eve in Sweden they leave out a bowl of porridge for the Tomten to eat.
