Strange as it may seem to many people today, sharing ghost stories used to be an important part of the Christmas celebration. In hopes of restarting this tradition, in this episode Matt shares tales told to him by co-workers, friends, and even a particularly chatty convenience store clerk. These stories, while perhaps not as chilling as others that have been shared on this podcast, are special to Matt because of the fact that they were shared through direct connection with other people rather than through print or electronic sources.
This episode was written by Matthew Armstrong with music by Matthew Armstrong and production assistance from Kaylia Metcalfe.
