A Christmas podcast that celebrates the coziest time of year.

    Coffee, Cookies, and a Norwegian Christmas Story

    Coffee, Cookies, and a Norwegian Christmas Story

    Happy June everyone! In today's episode I share a few quick life updates on why I've been gone so long, and then we get right into the Christmas goodness. In today's episode I explore a little bit of my Norwegian heritage by talking about some of my favorite Christmas coffee, some treats and cookies you might get at a Norwegian Christmas Party, and then we settle down by the Christmas fire and I read a Christmas Story called "Round the Yule-Log: Christmas in Norway" by Peter Christen Asbjornsen. So make sure to grab some Julekaker and coffee, and settle in for a fun episode of A Cozy Christmas Podcast!

    Christmas Afternoon by Robert Benchley

    Christmas Afternoon by Robert Benchley

    In today's episode I read a shorter short story by humorist Robert Benchley entitled "Christmas Afternoon (Done in the Manner, if not the Spirit, of Dickens)". It's a funny little vignette describing a chaotic Christmas Afternoon in the style of Charles Dickens. I hope you enjoy the story today!

    A Christmas Down Under

    A Christmas Down Under

    Welcome to the start of Season 5! Today I kick off the new season by reading Christmas traditions and memories from one of my listeners who lives in Australia. I really enjoyed what Shelly sent me, so I thought this would be a great thing to share with all of you. She talks about her families traditions, Christmas foods, how they maintain the spirit of Christmas even though the sun is scorching the themometer, and more. 
    There's also a few updates I share, including the news that our Cozy Christmas Book Club is currently voting on our first read of the year. Head over to The Cozy Christmas Book Club on facebook and vote now!

    Choosing Love Over Fear: Wrapping Up Christmas 2023 with guest Robert Peterpaul

    Choosing Love Over Fear: Wrapping Up Christmas 2023 with guest Robert Peterpaul

    Merry Christmas! This is my Christmas episode, out a few days late I know - but Christmas is a season, not just a day, right? 
    Today I wrap up season 4 and Christmas 2023 with the kindness guru himself - Robert Peterpaul, host of the Art of Kindness Podcast, returns to talk about Christmas, the importance of showing kindness (love over fear for the win!) - and we digress into one of the most interesting conversations I've ever had about A Christmas Carol. And if that wasn't enough for you, it's a good thing this episode is supersized! We also gush about our amazing spouses, our fur babies, and more. Then I end the episode by reading a selection from A Christmas Carol.
    This has been a great year for the podcast, but it's also been a long one. So I'll be taking a few extra weeks off from the podcast to rest, travel, and spend time with family. I'll see you again in late January as we'll begin Season 5! 
    Until then, let's remember to honor Christmas in our hearts, and try to keep it all the year.

    Christmas at Thompson Hall, Part 3: A Christmas Story by Anthony Trollope

    Christmas at Thompson Hall, Part 3: A Christmas Story by Anthony Trollope

    It's Christmas Eve! The best day of the year. To help you celebrate, here is the final parts to our story this month, "Christmas at Thompson Hall" by Anthony Trollope. I rearranged my publication schedule a little bit and decided to combine the last two parts into one episode. I've had a lot of episodes come out this week, and didn't want to clog up your podcast feed TOO much. If you're interested in listening to the whole story, here are the links:
    Part 1: https://cozychristmas.libsyn.com/christmas-at-thompson-hall-a-christmas-story-by-anthony-trollope-part-1-of-4 
    Part 2: https://cozychristmas.libsyn.com/christmas-at-thompson-hall-a-christmas-story-by-anthony-trollope-part-2-of-4 
    Part 3: 
    I know it says there will be 4 parts, but it's just 3. Sorry for any confusion! 
    Alright, I will have one more Christmas episode out on December 27th. Yes it will be two days after Christmas, but that's ok. Christmas is a season, not just a day!
    I hope you enjoy our story today!

    It Must Have Been the Mistletoe: Romantic Comedies for Christmas with Katie Wilbert

    It Must Have Been the Mistletoe: Romantic Comedies for Christmas with Katie Wilbert

    In today's episode I interview Katie Wilbert. She is the screenwriter of the new Christmas movie "A Vineyard Christmas". According to imdb: "Heather, host of 'Read Between the Vines', is determined to create the perfect Christmas episode by featuring a unique winery from her hometown. The only thing standing in her way? Rudy, the attractive, stubborn owner of the winery."
    In our interview, we talk about her journey to becoming a screenwriter, how her movie was made, and then Katie shares some of her picks of movies if you'd like to snuggle down with your significant other and watch some great Romantic Comedies Christmas movies. After that we talk about some of her favorite Christmas foods, music, memories and more!
    Katie Wilbert's Website: https://www.katiewilbert.com/ 
    Her film, A Vineyard Christmas is available on multiple streaming platforms including Amazon!
