Your Christmas Stories, For All To Hear

Dec 28, 2016

We asked, and you answered. Your memorable Christmas stories. Sweet, solemn, spirited. We’ll listen.

Holidays make stories. And Christmas is the Big One. Stories of dreams and plans gone awry. Of surprises and shocks. Stories of connections made and missed. Of children’s wonder. Of love and joy and, sometimes, sorrow. We asked for yours, and you shared. For the holidays. This hour On Point, good tape, open lines, and your Christmas stories. — Tom Ashbrook
