Elves

The Icelandic Elf School, Álfaskólinn, "teaches about the hidden people and the 13 different kinds of elves that inhabit the country of Iceland". According to Wikipedia, the existence of elves is a relatively common belief in the country.
The best part? The school has certificate programs so that anyone can participate and earn a degree in as little as half a day.

They have *fairies* too. Somebody was all set to build a highway through a forest and the people said "YOU CANNOT BUILD A HIGHWAY THERE! IT IS WHERE THE FAIRIES LIVE!"

Some days I think the fact of fairies in Iceland is all that gets me up in the morning.
