STORIES TO ENRICH YOUR HOLIDAY SEASON

Little could fill us with the Christmas spirit more readily than listening to NPR's TINSEL TALES. This is a collection of favorite Christmas stories selected by NPR voices throughout the years. Each selection stands alone as narrators share their special joys of the season, hopes for the future, and childhood memories.

It would be impossible to select a favorite from among such stellar tales as John Henry's Faulk's "Christmas Story", Ira Glass taking a look at the other side of Christmas in Chicago or Bailey White's "Low Glamour Christmas Party." Each story is a reflection of the narrator, and brings his or her own special message - all will touch hearts.

We've just listened again to Paul Auster's "Christmas Morning, 1949." It seems that during 2000 - 2001 Auster collected stories from listeners for the National Story Project. The one he has chosen to read is from Sylvia Seymour of Tennessee. It's an unforgettable remembrance of a Christmas morning when she was a child, and driving with her family to her grandparent's home. Her father saw a family huddled in the cold by a bus station. This is a morning she will never forget, nor will you.

Listening to the Christmas stories of others may well enrich the holiday season for each of us.
