German story (folktale?) on Christmas CD
December 4, 2007 5:21 PM Subscribe
Somewhere between 1991 and 1994, my father went on a business trip to Germany and visited a company called Elsentooling
. For three years afterwards, they sent our family a Christmas card with one of those extra-small compact discs inside. We still listen to the first one because it's just that good.
However, it's all in German, and I know not a stitch of it, though I'm half German. The second-to-last track (uploaded here
) is some sort of story. Is it something an American would be familiar with if you mentioned the title? If not, I'm curious how the story goes.

For those interested in hearing the entire album of six songs, I have included them in a rar file
. Really I only know what the last song is :) so if anyone wants to shed light on the other selections, feel free, but the story is the one about which I am most curious.
