Elves and hidden people

Houses of hidden peopleOne of the things I do to try to challenge myself and expose myself to things I would not normally encounter is to listen to the CBC podcast of The Current. Yesterday was another one of those time when I learned something new.

A majority of Icelanders believe in elves and hidden people. Companies pay real money to hire people with psychic powers to determine if their buildings and constructions would interfere with the domains of elves and hidden people – which live in another dimension. Apparently the Icelandic term for this is “Hulduf√≥lk.”

Of course, I’m one to talk.
