Deck the Hall with Horror: 66

In which Carla revisits the Victorian Christmas tradition of scary stories at Christmas by reading four horror classics of the era--and, in doing so, explores the not-well-known genesis of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, as well as the four-hundred-year-old origins of “Deck the Halls”.
