Grab a plate of turkey, stuffing and gravy and enjoy this extra cozy episode! I interview Brian Earl from the Christmas Past Podcast, and we chat about the origins of our podcasts, Christmas (of course!), and in the time-honored Thanksgiving tradition we share what we are thankful. Even though it's been a rough year for everyone, we find we have a lot to be thankful for. I hope you do too!
Then I read Louisa May Alcott's story, An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving. The Basset children are left on their own for a night before Thanksgiving when their parents are called away to tend their sick grandmother. How will they spend their time alone? By doing chores, reading stories by the fire, fending off a bear attack - and most daunting of all, preparing their own Thanksgiving dinner. Mother has done it every year - so how hard could it be?
(Episode Warning: Due to the extra coziness of this episode, it is advised to not listen will driving or operating heavy machinery. Listening to this episode while digesting a large turkey dinner can increase the drowsiness effect. Listener discretion is advised.)
