The first section is an audio interview with the GE office that handles letters from Santa Clause. It was an interesting piece that tried to capture a little bit about what happens to letters that go to the 12345 zip code. It was a little off-putting that letters of a more serious nature are shoved in a box labeled adoption and seemingly forgotten. While answering letters is a great service it was not very in the spirit of the holiday to hear how the letters dampened the festivity of the office.
The second section was an Australian version of The Night Before Christmas. I found it short, and humorous. It put an Australian twist on the favorite classic.
The third section was a short story by Charles Dickens. Dickens is one of my favorite authors and it was a delight to hear one of his stories that I had not experienced before. The story was amazing, even if it was probably more appropriate for a Halloween production then a Christmas one.
Lastly, there is an improve caroling skit about a party that was not doing so well. I am not a huge fan of improve, but I think I would have enjoyed seeing the production much more than listening to it. It seemed forced and fake more than spontaneous. I do not feel like it translated well.
Overall, it was an interesting collection that I enjoyed listening to. It was worth the hour of time that I invested. Also, it is free.
