In the spirit of the holiday season, we're re-airing one of our favorite Jonesy episodes, which originally ran on December 23, 2021, the Eve of Christmas Eve. Our guests are master storytellers Lynne Duddy and Lawrence Howard

Lynne and Lawrence are the founders of Portland Story Theater, an organization dedicated to the art of personal narrative. Since it's start back in 2004, Portland Story Theater has been presenting live in-person events featuring a diverse group of storytellers and their tales. But the Theater's gone dark during the pandemic, with a return to the stage still uncertain as to when and where. And I for one, miss them.

That's why it's a special holiday treat to have Lynne and Lawrence with us here today. They'll each tell their own stories of Christmas past -- Lynne's very spiritual and haunting "Do You Have A Dog?" and Lawrence's not-so-spiritual "The Secret Christmas Tree". about how one Jewish family celebrated, somewhat surreptitiously, the holidays in the suburbs of New York City.

Wishing you all a very happy holiday season, and better and brighter stories of your own in the new year!
