[Story]

It’s Christmas in Lake Wobegon, Christmas at the old radio show, Christmas at the Fitzgerald Theater in St. Paul, Christmas wherever friends and families gather to rejoice, reminisce, and share the holiday spirit.

This all-new collection includes songs, sketches, sound effects, laughter, sweet nostalgia, and a monologue or two, all with a Christmas theme and all heard originally on live broadcasts of A Prairie Home Companion.

Garrison Keillor, the show’s cast, and special guests are joined by hundreds of friends and acquaintances in a holiday gala that’s sure to become a family favorite and an annual tradition. 

Garrison Keillor, humorist and best-selling author, has hosted A Prairie Home Companion for more than 30 years. Each week, he brings listeners along on amiable visits to his mythical hometown, Lake Wobegon. A member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, he lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.
