I also spoke about the awesome
feature, in which a Krampus like character is mistaken for an ice-frozen Santa Claus.
CC also did a tongue-in-cheek Quiz as to whether one is on the Good List or Naughty List.
After the first break, CC reported our having listeners "just" in the US, what with holiday parties and being a heavy travel weekend.
Later France had listeners come in.

Hannukah ghost story,
as well as a similar ghost story she'd personally experienced.
Later she told another
holiday ghost story.
Henry asked about our favourite Christmas memories.
I mentioned our family train set, and Henry asked about slot-car racing.
I pointed out how my father owned for a year or two a slot-car parlour, attached to Butler Bowl in Butler, New Jersey.
Kat conveyed a personal story about Santa Claus that took place when Kat was in elementary school, catching her mother putting out the gifts.
She also conveyed how she bought her own beany-baby hippo, wrapped it To Herself From Santa, comically baffling both her parents.
Henry regaled a tale as a kid finding holidays gifts, and almost breaking a small rifle he was to receive.
After the second break, CC spoke of the song origins of

CC mentioned another Peter Falk angel movie being in a German film,
Faraway, So Close!,
which apparently was a follow up to
Wings of Desire.
To my surprise, Henry brought up the goofy Mexican 1958 film
about which I'd already spoken at length earlier in the show, pointing out it was recently done at a Rifftrax live event, and is consiidered a classic
not to be confused with the MST3K gang doing
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians,
or when they redid it as
