Welcome to Season 2, Episode 12 of the This Is Your Life podcast. In this twelfth episode, Michele Cushatt and I discuss some of my crazy Christmas memories. I can’t believe she got me to share some of these!
Spoiler Alert: In case you listen to my podcast with young children around, I blow Santa’s cover during this episode. I reveal how I discovered he is made-up. If this shocking truth might upset your children, please use earphones!

My family’s favorite holiday traditions.
Why we keep our decorations up until the Feast of Epiphany (January 6).

When I do my Christmas shopping. (No, it’s not on Christmas Eve.)
The gift-giving rule Gail, my wife, and I violate every … single … year.
One of Michele’s secret holiday addictions. It’s not crack, but it’s pretty close.
