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.

J.R.R. Tolkien: The Lord of the Rings – Performed by Andy Serkis

In another online community, we recently talked about the new Andy Serkis Lord of the Rings recordings.  Well, it turns out that the pull of The Ring is still mighty strong, for however much it may have been destroyed in Mount Doom. I had barely gotten my hands on these audios and I found I […]
