Evidently Santa’s helpers aren’t as stalwart as we thought they were. At least not according to this endearing image by the Norwegian artist Trygve Davidsen. Davidsen was a watercolorist who died in 1978, and specialized in religious art and whimsical “goblin” scenes like this one. This encounter with a fearsome mouse is from a Christmas card that we sent out years ago. I kept a copy because it was so darned charming. Happy Holidays to all my blog and Facebook followers and friends!
