Hi! I read The Elves and the Shoemaker by the Brothers Grimm:
https://librivox.org/uploads/annise/CSWC20_theelvesandtheshoemaker_grimm_lm_128kb.mp3
3:48

It can be found here: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/2591/2591-h/2591-h.htm#link2H_4_0041
I've never really considered this a Christmas Story and other versions we have of it are in the Children's short Works so maybe this would be better there?
