Today is Christmas. It is both a religious holiday and a cultural holiday. We celebrate together with our friends and family, showing appreciation and giving to one another regardless of our religious beliefs.
Today I listened to NPR’s radio stories about Christmas. Very touching. I laughed and cried and enjoyed hearing stories from the archives and also listening to David Sedaris’ long and short versions of his Elf Adventures from his “Santaland Diaries”.
Listen to this version of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens where all the voices except one (done by Mimi Kennedy) are performed by the versatile Jonathan Winters. What an amazing range he has!
Here are Tinsel Tales: NPR from 2010 that have some gems as well. Baily White’s ‘Low Glamour Christmas Party’ and ‘Ode to Christmas’ by Chuck Kramer are highly recommended.
Have a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Happy Kwanza and a very Happy Holidays however you celebrate it!
