Danish fisherman, Thomas Dam, did not have enough money to buy his daughter, Lila, a Christmas present. So, instead, he carved a doll that looked like a troll. Lila’s friends wanted one, too. And thus the beginnings of the troll doll.
By the mid 1960s, cheap plastic imitations of the doll made their way to the U.S. and became a big fad.
A troll is a Nordic mythological creature that lives in caves and is hostile towards humans. Unfortunately, not all trolls seek isolation. Some live on-line. These trolls are also hostile and like to create discord by posting irritating and provocative comments. In other words, they are bullies and nourish themselves with the bad karma they create.
Are you a troll?
