Happy Eve, sugar-plums!

If you visit here (the website, not the downtown location where this picture was taken) on Christmas Day you can hear a short story which turned into a not-so-short half hour recording about a Hollywood holiday twenty-eight years ago.

In the meantime something suitable for the children by Clement Clarke Moore (because the one I’ll be reading you tomorrow is most certainly not).

And if you’re wondering it’s Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, and Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donder and Blitzen. Rudolph the Red-Nosed was a creation of Robert L. May in 1939.
