Hello! Happy Christmas Podcast Day everyone! As all of us at the Christmas Podcast Network are talking about some of our favorite versions of A Christmas Carol, today I am going to look at a stage version – specifically I want to talk about how Charles Dickens performed a one man version of the novel, and how that carries on today through his Great Great Grandson, Gerald Dickens. I replay some clips from my interview with Gerald back in December 2020 where he talked about how he began to perform the Carol 30 years ago. I recommend you go and take a listen to the full episode!

Title: A Christmas Carol – On The Stage
A Cozy Christmas'

In today’s episode, my guest is Ken Smith from the North Pole News Dispatch! He’s made his way down from Santa’s village to talk to us about his Christmas memories and stories, his podcast, Christmas PJs (No pictures available, sorry! LOL!), and of course – the weather!

While Ken was reflecting on how Christmas has changed for him over the years, I realized that was a good title for the episode. We both talked about things that have changed, and things that remain the same. But even though how we celebrate might change over the years, one thing remains the same: Christmas is best celebrated with your friends and family!

Title: Christmas is Ever-Changing: an interview with Ken Smith from the North Pole News Dispatch
A Cozy Christmas'

In this heartwarming episode of “The Cozy Christmas Podcast,” we invite you to gather ’round and experience the magic of a classic Victorian Christmas tale. Join us as we delve into Elizabeth Gaskell’s enchanting story, “Christmas Storms and Sunshine,” where we explore the true spirit of the season.

Set in a quaint English village, we follow the journey of a young family who, for too long, harbored grudges against their neighbors. Will a near-disaster during the holiday season prompt a transformation in their hearts? Mrs. Gaskell’s classic tale offers us a lesson of reconciliation, community, and the power of Christmas goodwill. It’s a story that reminds us all that even in the coldest of winters, the warmth of our hearts can melt away any frosty disputes and lead us to a more harmonious, joy-filled holiday season.

Hello everyone, Happy October! In today’s episode I sit down with my daughter Grace and we catch up on life. Find out what she’s been up to this past year and how school is going for her now that she is in 9th grade. But of course, we do talk about Christmas – I find out she has some hot takes on gingerbread and which Grinch movie she prefers; we talk about who is the hardest and easiest person in our family to Christmas shop for; and then she shares some thoughts on how to show kindness during the Christmas season.

Then I read a beautiful Christmas letter sent in by a listener. She wrote it to her children and it’s entitled “Christmas Keeper” – and I hope that you or someone in your family is the official Keeper of Christmas!

In my family, it’s probably me…

Hello and Happy Christmas in July! In today’s episode I read you a charming Christmas story called “Mr. Kris Kringle”. In this classic story, it’s Christmas Eve, and two children and their single mother are facing having to leave their home soon and move to the city. They are also poor so Kris Kringle – aka Santa Claus – won’t be able to visit them this year. After the kids go to bed for the night, they hear a noise outside. What – or who? – could it be? Kris Kringle? A Robber? What happens next is a beautiful story of miracles and redemption.

Hello and welcome to the start of season 4! In today’s episode I give a few updates and share some news about our new Cozy Christmas Book Club. You can find details on my social media accounts.

The main portion of the episode today, I begin reading Charles Dickens’ novella The Chimes. It was released at Christmas time the year after A Christmas Carol was published. It tells the story of Toby Veck and a mysterious encounter he has with some goblins that haunt the church bells…

This novella will be read in parts over the next 8 episodes. Along the way I will have some guests on to chat, news to share, and lots of wonderful cozy books to talk about. I’m so excited to get this new season started – Let’s get counting down to Christmas 2023!

In today’s episode, we wrap up the 2022 Christmas Season with a cozy Christmas conversation with mystery author Peggy Ehrhart. She is the author of the Knit and Nibble mysteries, and has written several Christmas books for the series. In this episode we talk about her journey to becoming a published author, which includes being a former English professor with a doctorate in Medieval Literature! Then we talk about all the delicious foods one can find in cozy Christmas mysteries, and she walks us through her writing process. Then in the second half of the interview, she takes the Cozy Christmas questionnaire and we find out all about her thoughts on the different Christmas traditions that we know and love. This is a wonderfully cozy way to end the year, and I’m looking forward to beginning season 4 and counting down to Christmas 2023!

Be sure to stick around for January and February – I’ll be reading the New Year’s set novella, “The Chimes” by Charles Dickens, and I have lots of other fun things planned!

A Cozy Christmas'

It’s almost Christmas, and today I want to give you a story and a message for Christmas. I’ve had a few listeners wondering if I could address some of my thoughts about the religious significance of Christmas. So in today’s episode I want to talk about what Christmas means to me, what my faith means to me, and how the two are connected. I also read you a very sweet and inspiring story written by Leo Tolstoy. It’s also known as “Simon the Cobbler” and it tells the story of an elderly shoe maker. One day he hears a voice – God – saying that He would come and visit him tomorrow. So that next day Simon gets up and works by his window, looking out at the people and waiting for Christ to arrive. What he sees and does in response is what makes this story a beautiful message of what God’s love looks like.

This is a bit more religious than what I usually do on my podcast, but I felt like it was a message I wanted to share, and in some ways needed to share. My hope is that this episode will encourage you to be kind, to do good, and to honor Christmas in your heart, and try to keep it all the year.

From me and my family to all of you, I hope you have a very merry Christmas!

A Cozy Christmas'

Today, we’re celebrating the 100th episode of A Cozy Christmas podcast. I have a Q&A section where I answer questions and share Christmas memories from the audience. Then singer/songwriter Rehya Stevens and I sit down and catch up on life, and we talk about our favorite Christmas albums and the memories we have of them. Rehya then gives us some great tips on how to show kindness towards others during this time of year. (some of the organizations she mentioned are posted below if you’re interested.) I’ve been really excited to get this episode out, and I can’t wait to see what the next 100 episodes will bring.

And Christmas is just 5 days away!
