Christmas Podcasts for Those Traveling
By Jeremiah Thompson
Christmas time is for joy, celebration, and being with friends and family. Following all of that joy and celebration, however, is the stress of traveling and visiting relatives. During those times, a good podcast can help de-stress and even entertain you during those long periods of travel. Try out one of these 11 Christmas podcasts to fulfill your narrative desires.
Last year I traveled with my family to Barcelona for Christmas. The local airport was bustling with people, running by each other to catch their planes. I am never without my earbuds and my phone, so I was jamming to the tunes on my device. Looking around and waiting for our plane to start boarding, my eyes were beginning to close. To get in the spirit I wanted to listen to some Christmas stories, but I didn’t have any downloaded. Fortunately, there are podcasts that can fulfill that jolly narrative desire! Here are some Christmas podcasts for those looking for some Christmas stories.
A Very Hallmark Christmas
Are you into Hallmark movies? Well look no more, Loree and Rob spend time discussing the large variety of Christmas movies that Hallmark has made. Already into their second season, their desire to discuss Christmas movies knows no bounds. So join them as they explore the depths of Hallmark and the nearly uncountable movies that they have made over the years. You can find this podcast at this link.
If you are like me and wonder where some of the many holiday traditions come from, then this is the podcast for you. Christmas Past discusses the many holiday traditions surrounding Christmas. Why do we place gifts under a Christmas tree? Why do we even have a tree in the first place? All of these things and more are discussed in this seasonal podcast!
