WORDS ON A WIRE: The Christmas Show!
We proudly re-air Words on a Wire's 2013 Christmas show, which originally aired Dec. 22, 2013! Ben & Daniel celebrate the Christmas season with reflections on their favorite memories. Ben remembers making tamales with his mom when he was young, a tradition he continues to this day. Daniel remembers proudly writing a Christmas poem about Santa driving a Cadillac...only to find out that his teacher doubted his authorship. And Ben & Daniel also talk about their favorite Christmas songs and the memories they conjure. Ben's favorite is "I'll be Home for Christmas," which he says idealizes the often-unattainable concept of "home." Daniel tears up every time he hears "The Little Drummer Boy." Ben will also read T.S. Eliot's "Journey of the Magi."
Aired Dec. 21, 2014.
