242: The World Is Bright And Gleaming, It‘s A Wondrous Time Of Year; When The Lights Of The Season, Shine On Us All, And Holiday Time Is Here. (Once Upon A Sesame Street Christmas)

Happy Monday, Christmas fanatics!

Travel with Julia, Thom, and Anthony to the Sesame Street of yesteryear to discover the origins of its sunny disposition and learn why we leave cookies out for Santa Claus in the 2016, HBO/PBS Special, "Once Upon a Sesame Street Christmas"! As per usual when the muppets are discussed on this show, there's a lot of gushing from all three hosts over the wholesome, family-friendly content! Also discussed in this episode: The newest addition to this year's Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade; the band trip to Ireland that Julia's kids will be taking; casting the "Sesame Street" version of Charles' Dickens' "A Christmas Carol"; the choosing of the hosts "Spirit Muppets"; and much, much, more! This is one fun, holiday-cheer-filled episode you want to be sure not to miss! So settle in with your Pumpkin Spiced Latte, enjoy, and get excited - for we are officially entering October, which means we'll be taking a break from Christmas content for a month and diving into Spooky fare. First up next week, Disney's made-for-TV classic, "Halloweentown"!  As always, thanks for your support, everybody! And keep your eye on your podcast feeds this upcoming Thursday for Chapter Thirty-Five of "Another Christmas Story", which will be read to by the queen of Patreon, Ms. Kendall Farrae of "For Forks Sake"! 🎅🏻🎄🎁 🦌🦉⛄️🔔🚂 🤶🏻 🎀 ❄️
