16 Tasks of the Festive Season: Square 6 – Sinterklaas / St. Nicholas’s Day / Krampusnacht
Can you say angelic?
Book themes for Sinterklaas / St. Nicholas’s Day / Krampusnacht: A story involving children or a young adult book.
I was introduced to this story by its 1980s TV adaptation starring Alec Guinness and Ricky Schroder, which was a runaway success in Germany when first broadcast on TV and has long since become a holiday tradition — it just isn’t Christmas without it. I’ve long since read (and reread) the actual book, which I love almost as much as the movie adaptation … I admit this is one where I actually prefer the movie, thanks in no small part to Sir Alec, though possibly also to some extent simply because it was the first version I experienced. — That said, this year for a change I decided to listen to the audio version read by Johanna Ward, which I also enjoyed tremendously.
