    Love the podcast, and have told many fellow Christmas lovers about it. I wanted to add a vote for a “Yule Log” podcast, not just the ancient tradition, but the New York television tradition, too. I remember reading an article about it a few years ago, and it’s remembered fondly among people whose families were cable subscribers in the 80s and 90s.

    Also had another idea for you. In England, there is a tradition of Christmas ghost stories. “A Christmas Carol” is the most famous, of course, but Dickens actually wrote a number of Christmas ghost stories, as did other English authors, and they were usually included in the Christmas issues of magazines. I would love to hear more about this tradition.

    Thanks again for the podcast, and hope you and your family enjoy a lovely Christmas season.

      I have more to talk about the 11 Alive Yule Log (oh, yeah, goin’ old school–they don’t still call it that, do they? Haven’t watched in a looong time), and I may as well work in the ancient tradition (I’m pretty sure I talked about it somewhere, but I’m not sure where).

      I’ve had the request for an episode on “Christmas ghost stories” and have done some research and so far have come up with very little. It really doesn’t seem to be a thing, as far as I can tell, really. I will look into it again and see if I can come up with more.

      Thank you for your kind words, and your suggestions. Have a Merry Christmas.
