Kris Kringle - Xmas 2022

I'm taking a short break from writing and podcasting over the Xmas/New Year holiday period. But as a special treat for podcast listeners, I've put together a Kris Kringle collection featuring three "festive" episodes from the Tall And True Short Reads archive: The Gift, The Special Tree and The Spirit of Xmas.

The Kris Kringle stories first appeared on the Tall And True writers' website and were written and narrated by Robert Fairhead:

• The Gift:

• The Special Tree:

• The Spirit of Xmas:
