About this podcast:
Hosted by Rikki Meece and Mary Richards, the Sleigh Bells and Mistletoe Christmas Podcast was launched in July of 2019.
The podcast features expert guests on a wide variety of Christmas topics. The podcast is flavored by the Christmas interests of the hosts — Rikki is a vintage Christmas enthusiast with an affection for things from Christmas past. Mary tends to enjoy the romantic “feels” of all things Christmasy, with a soft spot for Hallmark Christmas movies. You could say that Rikki is “sleigh bells” while Mary is “mistletoe”.
