Happy Birthday, Hans

Anderson statue
Today in Odense, Denmark, in 1805 Hans Christian Anderson (I can never read that name without Danny Kaye's voice in my head) was born.

His original stories are immensely popular, though they were often so dark that the original English translations were heavily edited into sentimentality.

Some of his many stories are here.
