Merry Podcast #4

Episode #4 of the Merry Podcast is now available for download. This episode, brought to us by the fine folks at Magical-Santa-Letters.com, features several voices found on the Merry Network:

1. Our own Maureen discusses the history of Clement Moore's A Visit From St. Nicholas.

2. Michael Rielly of Clausnet.com talks about Dicken's model for the figure of the Ghost of Christmas Present.

3. We explore Thanksgiving history and discuss the importance of its influence on the season of Christmas -- and we share some more comedy from Stan Freberg related to Thanksgiving in American history.

4. Radio Jon D gives us the scoop on Black Friday 2010 both where the deals will be and what the tea leaves say about the economy for this holiday shopping season.

5. Jay talks about driving fast and picking up women in his storytelling of the history of Jingle Bells and introducing our latest name-that-artist contest with the World's Worst Mix of Jingle Bells.

It is a huge episode, one we enjoyed putting together and one where we learned that the diversity of voices really makes it a lot more interesting.
