Episode 3 - Fairytale Of New York

Episode 3 - Fairytale Of New York

November 29, 2021

On today's episode I take a look at the origins of a personal favourite and most certainly a British favourite Christmas Song - Fairytalk of New York by The Pogues featuring Kirsty McCall.

 

Written by Shane McGowan and Jem Finer; Fairytale of New York is about Irish people who immigrated to America in the 19th century to escape the potato famine and in hope of making it as entertainers in New York. Many didn't, however, and ended up homeless. It is also said to come from a desire to move away from tacky Christmas songs and to highlight the fact that a lot of people have a terrible time at Christmas. The main character is played by Shane McGowan reuniting with his troubled love Kirsty McCall.

 

Hope you enjoy the episode; leave feedback, comment and share alike.

Episode 2 - Liberty London

Episode 2 - Liberty London

November 21, 2021

This week's episode is all about shopping! And in particular the retail store; Liberty which is located in Regent Street, London, England.

The store is known to spot and champion young designers at the start of their careers, and many now-prominent brands were first available at Liberty. The store played essential role in spreading and popularizing Modern style. This continues Liberty's long reputation for working with British artists and designers.

The store is well known for having a Christmas themed floor; stocking yuletide items and selling them all year round for those of us that love Christmas, so no matter what time of the year it is, if you in and around London; make sure you head down there and check out what Liberty has to offer!

Episode 1 - Tomte

Episode 1 - Tomte

November 14, 2021

Hi all and welcome to my brand new Christmas podcast; KringleTalksKristmas, hosted by me, Kriss Kringle.

 

I venture from sunny old London, England and have always wanted to join the Christmas podcast world and I am delighted to say that I am now apart of the Christmas Podcast Network!

 

This first episode is called Tomte; which is a mythological creature from Nordic culture typically associated with Christmas. I have a few Tomte in my house and absolutely love them. Traditionally you find them short, having a long white beard, and wearing a conical or knit cap in gray, red or some other bright colour.

 

I hope you enjoy the first episode and can't wait for you to see what I have coming up!
