For clarification and just for anyone who is interested, a 'nisse' is a little Danish man (a bit like a house elf) which looks after the animals in the house in return for pudding. In a popular Christmas song they do this in the attic, so almost the roof...: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bvqtm4xqgBU

Thanks, that explains a lot! I was thinking, with all those animal thiefs, that eating on the roof seemed like a good idea lol.
