Item details

Create your very own Belsnickel!

Belsnickel is related to the companions of St Nicholas in the holiday traditions of southwestern Germany. He is described as a crotchety, fur clad gift-bringer, in the folklore of German speaking Europe, and is preserved in the Pennsylvania Dutch traditions today. More recently Belsnickel turned up in an episode of the Office, and was described by Jim Halpert as: "just like Santa, except dirty and worse!"
