In 2020 we're staying home for the holidays, and for our quarantine parties we have just one wish: that Stephen Thompson doesn't show up. This holiday week, we're throwing the All Songs Considered time machine into overdrive and making five stops to revisit our holiday adventures past. So round up friends and families and listen to our week-long holiday spectacular. (You can hear each of these special episodes and subscribe at our podcast feed.)

In 2012 we decided to go all out for our All Songs Considered holiday party. The guest list for this (trust us!) unforgettable night of music and tall tales included Kishi Bashi, Dan Deacon, Carrie Brownstein and Nellie McKay. We hosted the festivities at a secluded cabin we rented one weekend in a snowy woods. It was a chilly night, but we had a roaring fire, plenty of eggnog, vegan haggis and lots of holiday songs to keep everybody warm!
