We Are Santa’s Elves

This week the elves are joined by a very special guest, Brian Earl from Christmas Past, a podcast that tells the stories of behind your favorite holiday traditions, to talk about Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. Each person brings a unique perspective to this 1964 Rankin-Bass classic that makes for some extra lively discussion. Can Rudolph keep up with the likes of Charlie Brown? 

During the episode, the elves discuss New York Christmas traditions, their Christmas bucket lists, and candy you can only get during the Christmas season (sorta).
