Episode 63: The Little Fir Tree
Merry Christmas, from Tales from the Lilypad. I've been researching Norwegian folktales and, as always, am awed by the sadness and suffering in children's stories of yore. This is a sad story, or is it? It's about how it feels to be a little tree. Or is it more about being a person? A retelling by Marlene Wurfel of Hans Christian Andersen's beloved Christmas classic story for kids & family.
