Episode 090- Christmas Ghost Stories 2019

Happy Holidays! I hope you got what you wanted for Christmas and Hanukkah!

And…here’s one last present that I was hiding behind the sofa!

Last year I did a traditional Christmas ghost story reading. This is a tradition that harkens back to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and has been kept alive by the BBC throughout the decades.

I’ve decided I want to make this an annual event.

So, what I want to do this Christmas season is to tell a few short tales to chill you while you sit with just one flickering candle and a hot toddy or hot chocolate or a sugar-free energy drink. Whatever your poison, I hope these stories please you enough that maybe you can keep the tradition of the Christmas ghost story going with your own family.

This year I’ll be telling THREE GHOST STORIES!

William Wilson by Edgar Allan Poe (1839)

The Outsider by H.P. Lovecraft (1926)

The Pale Man by Julius Long (1934)

I hope you enjoy the show, and I look forward to having more conversations in 2020!
