Christmas Ghosts & Fairies

Christmas in New Babbage, when the city is covered in snow, and we gather around the hearth for the very Victorian custom of telling a ghost story on Christmas Eve.

Victor1st Mornington reads The Ghost of the Blue Chamber, by Jerome K. Jerome, from Told After Supper, 1891.

Fairy Tale Waltz, Isolated Harp from Danse Macabre, Ominous Gloom, written and performed by Kevin MacLeod.

Outro: Ianone Constantine

Additional voices recorded in the city's numerous pubs and bars.
