Episode 092: A Kidnapped Santa Claus/Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins

What're the holidays without children's stories? Every year, families gather around their yule rocks and Festivus poles to hear their favorite tales of holidays past -- which means it's rare that anyone discovers a new seasonal story.

Enter L. Frank Baum's A Kidnapped Santa Claus and Hershel and the Hanukkah Goblins by Eric Kimmel and Trina Schart Hyman. One's a fairy tale about saving Christmas from a bunch of Daemons, the other's about saving Hanukkah from a bunch of Goblins. So...similarities.

Save the holidays with us as we discuss Banta Claus, trolling goblins, and hilarious Hershel of Ostropol.
