When I was a little kid my parents would tune into the radio every day, in the weeks before Christmas, to let us listen to The Cinnamon Bear. This old radio show (1937) featured the adventures of Jimmy and Judy Barton and the Cinnamon Bear, as they chase across Maybeland, trying to get the Silver Star back for their Christmas tree.
For those of you who remember this show with equal fondness, you might be interested to know that the show is now in the public domain. You can download it for free from The Cinnamon Bear or listen to it online at RadioLovers.
The best part of all this is that if your kids like it, you'll never have to put up with the temper tantrums my parents did, when something comes up to make you miss a day's episode.
