Stories by:
Damon Runyon - Dancing Dan's Christmas
Joseph Mitchell - The Cave Dwellers
E.B. White - Christmas and Relative Pronouns
and Notes and Comment - from The New Yorker, 12/17/32

All three of these writers were journalists, and all three were journalists in New York, in the 1920s, 1930s, and beyond. Their stories give us the poetry of the city and its uncelebrated people. The warmth of these writers in a cold world - winter cold and ‘30s Depression cold - glows with holiday spirit. Runyon, Mitchell, and White show us people drawn together in community, celebrating the season, and bringing us all a cup of good cheer. Come have a Tom & Jerry with us (that's the cocktail, not the famed cartoon duo) and join the spirit of the Winter holidays.
