We are the Wintertide Gnomes

Meet my dear friends Adalbold  Crystaldrift, Varick Frostshine, and Arnulf Twinklesnow who are currently cosied up in their little pouches, resting before their work with Father Winter begins.  You see these gnomes are charged with gathering up little crystals of sunlight during the summer and keeping them safe until Father Winter covers Mother Earth with his beautiful blanket of snow.  Once she is aptly covered my dear friends here sprinkle the crystals of sunlight on top of the blanket, so whenever you see the snow shimmer in the Sun's rays or twinkle under the Moon's light you will know that the magic of these gnomes is afoot.
