I wouldn't call it exemplary. All it takes is a visit to any souvernier shop anywhere in Norway, where you'll find figurines of all the things listed above (along with vikings, norse gods, and whatnot) all over the place.
Apparently Norwegians value their traditional culture more than Finns do. Finnish souvenir shops sell postcards and Laplandish junkie, not mythological creatures.
A Christian must not be fanatical; he must have love for and be sensitive towards all people. Those who inconsiderately toss out comments, even if they are true, can cause harm.
