Tales for a Winter's Night An Old Fashioned Christmas with Alton Takiyama-Chung_edited.jpg
Dear Santa,
It has been a heck of a year.  With the sky green and grass blue, we could use a touch of tradition. 

Gather round and hear folktales, old and new, exploring Holiday traditions, like tinsel and pickle ornaments.  Listen to a story of a boy in search of the perfect gift for his Momma and a true story of what happened on Christmas Eve in 1944 during WWII.  And it would not be a traditional Christmas without Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. 

Join storyteller Alton Takiyama-Chung for an Old Fashioned Christmas and a virtual cup of Holiday cheer.
