Let's go into Christmas on the right note, with a free podcast of Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol. (Find it here on iTunes.) Written in 1843, Dicken's tale remains one of the most popular Christmas stories of all time. It gave us the indelible characters of Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. And it invented the notion of "christmas spirit." This podcast is rather well read. If you'd like to read along with the actual text, you can get a free etext here, courtesy of Project Gutenberg.
Also, you can find other free Christmas stories at Librivox. On this page, you can stream mp3s of many different holiday tales.
