Tomtemor önskar Tomten lycklig resa
Tomtemor önskar Tomten lycklig resa, vykort från 1919.

Tomtemor är jultomtens fru.
Till skillnad från sin make har tomtemor ingen motsvarighet i folklore eller mytologi.
Istället skapades hon av amerikanska författare.
Hon populariserades av poeten Katharine Lee Bates i hennes dikt Goody Santa Claus on a Sleigh Ride (tomtemor på slädtur) (1889).
Den litterära figuren har sedan dess framträtt i berättelser, filmer, television och andra medier.


This is geocache no 8 in a series of 24,
a kind of Geocaching-Christmas Calender for the Christmas of 2019.
The remaining 23 are placed in various locations all over Sweden.

The wife of Santa Claus is first mentioned in the short story "A Christmas Legend" (1849), by James Rees.
In the story, an old man and woman, both carrying a bundle on the back, are given shelter in a home on Christmas Eve as weary travelers.
The next morning, the children of the house find an abundance of gifts for them.
