Description

In which Carla revisits the Victorian Christmas tradition of scary stories at Christmas by reading four horror classics of the era--and, in doing so, explores the not-well-known genesis of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, as well as the four-hundred-year-old origins of “Deck the Halls”. Things get silly and eerie in turn. Come sit by the fire and enjoy some cupcakes and wassail. (Original episodes from 2017 and 2018 with new content)
