Already being hailed as a timeless Christmas classic… the On the Daley Christmas Special touches hearts and opens minds as we hear about the history of eggnog, what the “everytime a bell rings” girl is up to, and a check on Santa’s safe arrival back at the North Pole.
Have you ever wondered who decided to mix up a dozen eggs with some milk and sugar and then celebrate the holidays? And why did they decide to call it NOG??
Yeah, so did I… That’s why I had to talk with Jim Chakeres, Executive Vice President of the Ohio Poultry Association about the history of nog!
Also, do you remember the line, “everytime a bell rings, an angel gets his wings,” from It’s a Wonderful Life? That was Zuzu Bailey played by Karolyn Grimes! She joined the show to talk about her role in forever shaping Christmas in America and guess what?! She has a new cookbook!
And how could we call it a Christmas Special without a little Santa Claus? Well, we call NORAD, who are the people that track him on his journey delivering gifts around the world and make sure that he made it back to Mrs. Claus and the elves up at the North Pole!
So here’s my gift to you! Listen to the On the Daley Christmas Special Here!
