Podcast #18– Click here to listen to this week’s podcast- Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer AND Gloria the Groundhog?
We start with a quick recap of the week’s highlights. We move right into a discussion about picking the perfect name for our Christmas Groundhog. What name will we pick? Will our groundhog maybe be Russian? (Insiders know how I love Cheburashka) Our main focus is on Rudolph. The little reindeer that was born as a Department Store promotional product has grown to be one of the most beloved Christmas icons- right up there with Santa himself. Of course we discuss the 1964 television special from Rankin & Bass too. This annual animated gift added so much more to the basic tale of Rudolph: best friend, love interest, danger, intrigue, travel, rescue, and more! Enjoy and let us hear what other Christmas songs or traditions you want to hear more about.
