Long ago, a wicked wizard lived on the far side of the sunset. There he prepared spells to destroy happiness and laughter. One day he said to himself, "I must capture Santa Claus!" he crowed. "Then millions of people all over the world will be miserable!" Now, capturing Santa Claus was simple, for he was a trusting fellow. He was minding his own business, browsing through stores and market stalls, when, all of a sudden 一 WHOMP 一 he stepped into the wicked wizard's net trap. Up, up he went, whisked off the street, off the Earth, swept away to the far side of the sunset."Gotcha!" cried the wizard as he rubbed his hands together and danced up and down.

In ancient times, Frigga, goddess of beauty, love and marriage, sat working at her loom toward the end of the winter solstice. This particular solstice was special, for it was when she gave birth to her most beloved child, Baldur. Frigga's special talent was that she could divine the fates of men and gods. One day Frigga discovered her son was going to die young. Frantic, she made everyone and everything promise that they would not harm Baldur."We will spare him," they all promised.

Alas, the day approached, and the couple had saved nothing."I know," the old woman said. "We'll sell my kimono." "Impossible," the farmer said.

Long ago, a poor couple, Amir and Anahita, lived with Amir's parents on a tiny plot of land in southern India. As time passed, life became harder. Amir's mother's sight was failing, so she was unable to help her daughter-in-law with the cooking, mending and washing. His aging father was too weak to work in the fields. Anahita was sad, for she and Amir had been married for many years, but they still had no children. One year the monsoons did not come, and so, after a while, nothing grew anywhere. The family worried that they would starve. One day, Amir walked past a wealthy lord's estate. There, above the protective walls, Amir could see bananas, mangoes and pomegranates growing in abundance. "I must climb the wall and bring back something for my family," Amir said to himself. So, Amir scra ...
