THE GOBLINS WHO STOLE A SEXTON, a Charles Dickens Christmas Story – SA170

GoblinsFor a holiday treat, we read Charles Dickens’ precursor to A Christmas Carol, The Goblins Who Stole a Sexton, a chapter from The Pickwick Papers.

In this story are all the elements we appreciate about A Christmas Carol — a grumpy curmudgeon, Christmas, supernatural creatures that teach a lesson, and a change in character for the main character — in an early and less refined form.

Merry Christmas! And don’t forget to check out The Crossover Network for more holiday podcast episodes!
