Do you believe in elves?
Most people in Iceland believe in elves according to research conducted by Dr. Terry Gunnell at the University of Iceland. Most of the subjects in the study said they either believed in the elves (8 percent), or did not completely rule out that they exist (55 percent).
The belief in elves seems to transfer from one generation to the next as the results from Terry’s 2007 study mostly mirrored the results from the same type research conducted over three decades earlier (1974).
The elves are usually kind to people who respect them and their home, but can cause great harm or even death if they are upset.
