Storyline

This tale is a poem written by Neil Gaiman and depicts the giving of gifts by Santa as his punishment was "harsher" than that of Prometheus or Sisyphus. Worth listening and the voice of Craig Ferguson fits perfectly the atmosphere and tone of this little Christmas story. Written by dragoness_original
