The Pied Piper of Hamelin
Pied Piper of Hamelin Day/National Ratcatcher's Day (1376)
-- As legend has it, in 1376, townspeople hired a rat catcher to lure away the vermin overrunning their village. The rat-catcher, dressed in multicolored (pied) clothes, does this by playing an alluring song on his pipe. After successfully ridding the town of rats, the people of Hamelin refused to pay the piper. So the man — a pied piper — returned a year later, and lured more than a hundred children out of their homes in Hamelin, Germany, never to be seen again.

Read: The Pied Piper of Hamelin
-- In the town of Hamelin, the rich folk live high off the hog, while the poor and sick must scavenge in the trash left behind. And the trash keeps building up and up until a horde of rats overruns the town. In this lively retelling, a spunky street kid narrates the age-old tale of a piper who offers to rid a town of its rats for a single gold coin, then lures away the town's children, when the greedy mayor reneges on the deal.
