Ho ho ho, and happy holidays to all our listeners out there! On this festive and wide-ranging Christmas-themed episode, Tom and Jenny take you on a more than three-hour journey that comprises discussions of the tradition of Christmas ghost stories, the visual evolution of the modern Santa Claus, the mischievous elfin creatures known as nisse and tomte, Santa's terrifying cannibalistic scarecrow sidekick Hans Trapp, and some horrific tragedies that occurred around Christmases throughout the years, including the Italian Hall Disaster of 1913, the Lawson Family Massacre of 1929, and the tragic killer Santa slaying of 2008, the so-called Covina Massacre. Settle in with your cookies and milk and get ready for some reindeer games; it's the holiday happiness and horror of episode 175.
