The Use of Sorrows

Victorian Christmas: The Goblin and the Paw
In which Carla revisits the Victorian Christmas tradition of scary stories at Christmas by reading two classics of the era--and, in doing so, explores the not-well-known genesis of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, to boot. Things get silly and eerie in turn. Come sit by the fire and enjoy some cupcakes and wassail.
