A family Christmas tradition

Welcome to the new Wounded Coot Web site, publishers of “Mr. Gonopolis And His 12 Holsteins — A Christmas Story,” a regional holiday classic for more than a quarter century.

Uncle Hyggly with nieces and nephews.

Uncle Hyggly with the nieces and nephews he originally wrote the story for.

You can read the entire story online, or listen to the complete audio track. We hope the story of the goodhearted farmer and his twelve milk cows who fill in for Santa and his reindeer will become part of your family’s Christmas tradition, as it has for so many others.
