26. A Christmas Story. [Holiday Special.]

This Is Your Mixtape takes a little holiday break from its usual format. Michael, your steadfast host, tells the story of Christmas when he was twelve through the lens of some carols that are important to him. It's a story about encountering mortality, losing innocence, love, resilience, and the magic of unexpected gifts.

Michael’s Christmas Songs.

The Skater’s Waltz.
Carol of the Bells.
My Favourite Things.
I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day.

All of the clips heard in the episode were plonked out by Michael on an out-of-tune upright.
