Saint Nicholas and the waking nights.

When Saint Nicholas and Black Pete walk the rooftops at night, they are startled by strange nocturnal noise: from bell ringing to popping balloons and even a drum kit. The whole town lies awake night after night and the locals are angry with Saint Nicholas, thinking he is causing the noise. Just by chance, the shrewd businesswoman Frutselia runs a shop, selling special sleep remedies, which has been doing very well since the night noise. Saint Nicholas is very sad that people are angry with him. There is only one thing to do: Saint Nicholas must prove his innocence….
