J.R.R practically invented the concept of "elf".(aka legolas, arwen and elrond)


The norse legends and stuff all seemed like they were more like the fay right?

Well, ancient Celtic myths did have some elfs that were similar to those in Lord of the Rings.
The Norse used the same word for dwarfs and elfs a lot of the time, but they occasionally differentiated. The elfs in Norse myths ranged from small mischievous fairy-like things to beings similar to the Elfs in LotR.

Okay, now if modern day thinks elves are all tall & sexy, how the hell did the freaky midget things in Santa's workshop spring up? :?

Because elf used to be a generic term for all fairies in some places.

And cause the santa story was invented by the delusions of a dying drunk bum on a street corner in Germany so he probally did see little elvens running around in his liquor induced semi-coma.

In some legends, "dark" elves have body parts of animals. As in they look completely human, but might have a hoof for a hand, or a crows foot. Or maybe a dogs ear. :?
