Longing for a Thanksgiving & Christmas season that really means something to your family this year?
Fill YOUR Home with all the Warmth, Joy and Spirit of an “Old Fashioned Holiday” Season… and enjoy the very same delightful sounds and stories your Grandparents and even Great-Grandparents listened to and loved when they were young!
Nothing recaptures the wholesome, old-fashioned spirit of the holiday season better than these classic holiday radio programs… NOTHING! They are MAGIC.
It’s one of our most treasured “family traditions”…
Each and every year here at the Erskine house — about two weeks before Thanksgiving, the same day the Pilgrim dolls and cornucopia are set out on our table — the kids would eagerly dig out our well-used copy of this audio collection and ask to listen again to these truly WONDERFUL holiday programs.
From then on, almost every afternoon and evening… while getting supper ready, doing chores, and just relaxing around the house, our family listens to two or three of these programs — and we keep on doing so, right up through Christmas and New Years. They fill the house with the spirit of the season in a way nothing else can equal. The stories and music in these vintage Thanksgiving and Christmas programs are an integral part of our holidays…. We just wouldn’t consider the season to be complete without them.
You’ll find these heart-warming, inspirational, fun-filled stories will fill YOUR home with an old-fashioned holiday spirit as well. They have a magic all their own that you won’t find on the TV or video. They will remind you over and over of the true meaning of the season.
Here’s just a partial listing of the Holiday audio treats you’ll find in
our All-Time Favorite Holiday Stories Collection:
First we have a double handful of wonderful Thanksgiving stories — focusing on the history and tradition of Thanksgiving in America. You’ll hear stories of the Pilgrims and pioneers who helped build our great country… as well as some warm and humorous stories celebrating the true meaning of “thanksgiving”. These heartwarming stories are a wonderful way to give your children a real understanding the holiday is and remind us all what it is (or at least should be) all about.

|“Definitely get the Homeschool Radio Shows “All-Time Favorite Holiday Stories Collection!” We got them last year and they were a hit. It really set the mood for the holidays. Never got tired of listening to them. It really brings the past into the here and now.” — Melissa H.|
Next, this All-Time Favorite Holiday Stories collection contains dozens and dozens of delightful Christmas programs! There’s lots of great holiday music, adventure, warm & humorous family stories, and excellent stories about the Nativity. Nothing comes even close to these wholesome family programs for bringing the spirit of Christmas alive in your home. They are an annual tradition here at our house — They add so much warmth and magic to the holiday season, you won’t believe it!

The Real Christmas Story
Included in this collection are several reverent, respectful dramatizations of the Biblical Nativity story that the whole family will enjoy. This is really an amazing variety of tales — each of these programs focus on a different aspect of the Nativity story. Granted, some with a good deal of dramatic license — but all are excellent, thought-provoking tales.
