The Spirit of Xmas

When I was a boy, I thought the spirit of Xmas was receiving: from my overflowing Santa Sack and gifts under the Xmas tree. Then I grew up, and for me, especially after I became a dad, it's giving. I like choosing gifts for family and friends, which is why I say bah humbug to the modern Kris Kringle.

The Spirit of Xmas is a blog post from the Tall And True writers' website, written and narrated by Robert Fairhead.

Please note: I dedicate this podcast episode to my family and other families who spent Xmas 2021 separated or in isolation due to COVID.
