L2L Christmas Stories

Christmas Literature

“My dear Watson, observe the hobbit ambling down Broadway … ”

This week, Christmas stories from Arthur Conan Doyle, Damon Runyon, and J. R. R. Tolkien. We have a goose that swallowed a precious gift, the effect of rock and rye on three unintentional magi, and one of the clumsier Yule animals.

  • Damon Runyon, “The Three Wise Guys” (1933)
  • Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, “The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle” (1892)
  • J. R. R. Tolkein, Letters From Father Christmas (1920–1942)

Leigh and P. T. also chat about literature that might be worth giving or getting and music recalling Edgar Allan Poe.
