A Spooky Christmas Tale: Smee

December 25th, 2020

For this holiday season let's go on an adventure to a Victorian Christmas of long, long ago. Did you know that during the Victorian era, publishers of newspapers and magazines printed ghost stories during the Christmas season for chilling winter reading by the fireside or candlelight. It was a time of reflection as the days became longer and darker. People would gather and share tales of past winters, of deaths that occurred, of births and rebirths. “Christmas was originally connected to the 'pagan' Winter Solstice celebration and the festival known as Yule. The darkest day of the year was seen by many as a time when the dead would have particularly good access to the living,” that was a quote from religious studies professor Justin Daniels stated in an University of Pennsylvania blog.

So gather around the fire my friends. Warm your hands, grab a glass off of the counter and lets nestle up as we enter into Alfred McClelland Burrage world of words this is the Christmas telling of the game Smee…..

I am currently working on Season 4 of How About A Story. Keep an ear out for new episodes dropping in February / March of 2021.
