Description

March of the choir from the Church through the falling snow. A poor urchin enters the building and sleeps. Life seems to enter a statue of one of the saints, and the boy imagines that Fahet Xmas has taken him in hand to help distribute the Season's Gifts. He passes over roofs leading a donkey. He descends a chimney and places toys on the children's bed. The delight of the children when they awake is good to see.

Story of St. Nicholas

This film, categorized as a religious one about Christmas, could easily be a non-religious Santa Claus one, except that this tries to tell a Christian story of Saint Nicholas. The Saint is in his Church and sees a sick or dead child on the ground, and helps him up and brings him out. Outside the child, healed, decides to help St. Nicholas to bring gifts through the chimneys to all the Children. They ride on a donkey. The description tells us that there is a little more to the story than what is preserved, although we do have enough of it to get the gist. I found it to be a nice little Christmas movie.
