Re: Christmas Fairy Tales?
In The Elves and the Shoemaker, the discovery is made, and the gifts to the elves, around Christmas.
Tatterhood meets up with the trolls and witches on Christmas and her sister suffers the enchantement that starts the story. The Cat on the Dovrefell also features a Christmas invasion. In Why the Sea Is Salt, the poor brother goes begging on Christmas Eve.
Hans Christian Andersen also has a number that feature Christmas.
