Like many of these Hans Christian Andersen fairy tales, I hadn’t read Twelve By The Mail yet. It was a short, cute fairy tale which is perfect for this time of year! This tale is also known as The Twelve Passengers.
It centres around celebrations at New Year. 12 passengers appear, asking entrance to the city. I think you can imagine what their names are… it’s interesting to read the description of each of the month of the year!
There’s not much more to say about this fairy tale. It’s not action packed but it’s short and sweet enough!
