Like Sir Gawain, this story teaches a strong moral lesson and is applicable today, commenting on the state of the human race and the true meaning of Christmas.
A sexton is a grave digger and this particular sexton, goes out to dig a grave on Christmas eve. This would be a nasty job for anyone but this sexton enjoys his work, hates manking, and especially despises children.
Well, this Christmas, the sexton gets the surprise of his life when he goes out to dig, has a drink to warm his bones, then receives a visit from the most unlikely of characters, who then takes him on an unforgettable and life-changing journey! I highly recommend everyone read this short story. Happy Holidays!
