Description:

David Sedaris contributes his now classic "Santaland Diaries," his account of his experiences playing Santa's little helper at Macy's in New York. Susan Stamberg sneaks her mother-in-law's recipe for cranberry relish onto the air—again. Storyteller Kevin Kling finds an invitation to participate in a production of The Nutcracker too tempting to resist. Ghanian-born commentator Meri Danquah shares her thoughts on Kwanzaa. Cowboy poet Baxter Black describes a Christmas cookie with "the denseness of an anvil and the half-life of a radial tire." Robert Siegel goes in search of the correct spelling for December's Jewish holiday. The Thanksgiving tables are turned on unsuspecting Bostonians in "When Turkeys Attack." And more.
