Ole Lukøje (The Sandman) – Denmark

Standard

Ole lukje

Ole Lukøje, or the Sandman, is a Norse folklore/legend about a magical/fey creature that comes to blow sand in a child’s eyes to make them sleepy. At least that is what I was told when I was little. Some stories say that Ole Lukøje has two umbrellas. One is for good children, filled with pictures and dreams; the other for naughty children, that is empty and has no dreams at all. If you want nice fun dreams, you must sleep without a fuss or Ole Lukøje will give you the naughty umbrella. 🙂
