Christmas is weird. It used to be even weirder. This is proof.

Weird Christmas Elves with Linda Raedisch


WC Podcast #18: Christmas Elves with Linda Raedisch

As if writing one of my favorite books about Christmas lore (The Old Magic of Christmas: Yuletide Traditions for the Darkest Days of the Year) wasn’t enough, Linda Raedisch just came out with a book about the forgotten history of elf legends: The Lore of Old Elfland: Secrets from the Bronze Age to Middle Earth. So why not have her on the podcast again to talk about Christmas elves…a discussion that goes way beyond Santa and the North Pole.

Get her books at Amazon or Llewellyn:

The Danish anthropologist she mentioned is Peter Glob.

Some of the cards with Halloween fairies are here.

The bumper music was “I’m an Elf” (Dan Crow) and “Never Fall in Love With an Elf” (Amy Spanger).
