Meet Dr. Xmas, your consummate holiday expert. Born on December 25th (we’ll save the year), the holiday has held a special place in her heart since she was a tiny tot. She’s made Christmas and all its festivities, myths and folklore her niche. Exploring Christmas—its joy and magic and what it means to those around her is where she puts just some of her unstoppable, bubbly yuletide energy. In her podcast, she explores holiday themes, rituals and those crazy things we do each holiday season. Some of these you may have been wondering about for years, others well--who knew? All in the name of peace on earth and peace of mind: Why do we fill socks? What's with kissing under the mistletoe and whose brilliant idea was it for making fruitcake anyway? Her goal? To spread good tidings of great cheer and all things Tiny Tim to a sometimes too-busy-for-Christmas world. Whew! Now that's something worth striving for, don't you think? Enjoy and happy holidays!
