This article is about kitchen gods in European mythology. For the Chinese Kitchen God, see Kitchen God.

Kitchen gods are mythical beings that represent abstract concepts such as luck or just propel the minor changes of everyday life. Little things that cannot be explained, such as losing small objects like socks in the laundry are often attributed to these creatures because the explanation eludes the believer.

Kitchen gods are a modern interpretation of the Brownie (elf).
