Giving doesn’t stop on “The Days After Christmas” written by John Nieman ( Podcast interview)
Lindsay Brinkley had begun to dread Christmas. As she liked to tell her out-of-town kids, “It’s all months of commercial preparation, and then poof! It’s over in one day.” Inspired by some TV interviews with department store Santa’s who share that sentiment, she decides to extend the season with weeks of anonymously delivered gifts. Trouble is, the news media becomes obsessed with Santa’s secret helper and wants to unmask her. Along her journey, she does rediscover the true spirit of Christmas, especially when she meets the modern-day Santa.
