106 Holiday Parades, Small and Boat

There’s more to holiday parades than Macy’s, although I’ll talk about that too. You’ll find all the episodes, Christmas Stocking merch and more at MyChristmasStocking.net. Tell me your Christmas plans or Christmas memories–or wish someone Merry Christmas at (323) 487-12-25.  Or email them, along with music and show ideas, to TopElf at MyChristmasStocking dot NET.
