Nicholas Was: The Darker Side of Christmas

Nicholas Was: The Darker Side of Christmas

Nicholas was,
Older than sin,
And his beard could grow no whiter,
He wanted to die.

Nicholas Was is a darkly humorous animated short film, the 2010 Christmas Card created by the Beijing studio, 39 Degrees North.  The animated short is an adaptation of a wonderful poem by the fantastic Neil Gaiman.  The film begins by taking a rather unconventional route, and after that there’s simply no turning back. The pull of the dark side becomes just too strong, resulting in an arduous and thankless trip for St. Nicholas that is way beyond awesome.
