This holiday season we bring you stories by The Bear, Berlin’s one-of-a-kind storytelling event. Ben McGuire’s “Christmas on the Sand” brings to life the scorching heat of an Australian Christmas Day on the beach.

“One Christmas Day on Bondi Beach, I pulled a Japanese man out of a rip. It was nothing to me. But to him, it meant the world.”

The Bear’s next storytelling event is on Jan. 18.
