Episode #25 of the Merry Podcast is now online and ready for download. Titled "We'll Leave the Light on for you, Mr. Dickens" this episode is designed to erase any remaining hint of post-Christmas blues you may be experiencing with:
-- Richard Marx' not-so-widely seen Christmas video release of the song Christmas Spirit from his 2012 album of the same title, a good prescription for what ails you in January
-- A new discussion on Charles Dickens' rightful place in Christmas history. Recently historians have dubbed Dickens the "father of the modern Christmas", claiming Christmas existed differently before A Christmas Carol. Does that sound right to you?
-- The Early Trends of Christmas 2013 -- we're talking color and decor already!
-- A comprehensive history of Christmas lights. How can Christmas lights have an ancient history if electric lights only have a history of 130 years or so? We go there.
-- A report on the massive Christmas returns of 2012
In all, this is about an hour long exploration of Christmas music and history sure to kick off your Christmas year right.
