Publisher's Summary

Like an overstuffed stocking on Christmas morning, NPR Holiday Favorites is full of unexpected pleasures and evergreen delights:

  • Susan Stamberg sneaks her mother-in-law's recipe for cranberry relish onto the air - again.
  • Storyteller Kevin Kling finds an invitation to participate in a production of The Nutcracker too tempting to resist.
  • Ghanian-born commentator Meri Danquah shares her thoughts on Kwanzaa.
  • Cowboy poet Baxter Black describes a Christmas cookie with "the denseness of an anvil and the half-life of a radial tire".
  • Robert Siegel goes in search of the correct spelling for December's Jewish holiday.
  • Adam Gopnik, New Yorker writer and self-proclaimed secularist, celebrates the universal optimism inherent in Christmas.
  • The Thanksgiving tables are turned on unsuspecting Bostonians in "When Turkeys Attack".
