- About This Item.
They are good natured and jolly, and rarely get angry. But if one does get angry, he quickly recovers his good nature and joins again in the sport. If a Goblin should continue angry he would take on some visible form. Perhaps he would become a toad or a squirrel, or some other little animal, and would have to live here on the Earth-plane forevermore.
But, if he keeps good natured, he can come here and have his fun, and not be seen by any one except a Seer, or very wise person. The Goblins are gracious to the wise people now, but they were not always so. A long, long time ago, on a Christmas-eve, the Fairy-folk were having great sport. All the little people of the Unseen-world had gathered together in the Earth-realm.
There were Brownies, and Gnomes, and Elves; even some little Cherubs had joined them. They were having a wild dance and a gay time when who should appear but Kris Kringle! Now the Fairies did not know that he was a Magician, or Seer, and so they tried to make sport of him.
But Kris by his wonderful magic, changed them into the most beautiful toys. They became straight little jumping-jacks, and dolls in bright dresses, and the dearest little rabbit with white, soft fur. And somewhere in the bottom of the sleigh one was turned into a cute little Teddy-bear.

Then old Kris tucked all these toys into his roomy sleigh, and shook the reins of his waiting steed. The big bright Moon hung high and round,In a densely darkened sky;The tall pines swayed, and mocked, and groaned;The mountains grew so highThat the Man-in-the-Moon came out and said,"Ho! Spooks, for a merry dance. A Witch and a Goblin led the sprites;Out from the sky they sprung;And down the milky way they slid,And over a chasm swung.
The streams around ran witches' broth,The fumes were strong and rank. These Elfin creatures all were wroth,While of the stuff they drank.
