The best stories from Carolyn Hax’s holiday live chats
Carolyn shares a remixed version of Clement C. Moore’s poem, “A Visit From St. Nicholas,” by her dad, John Hax, in many of the hootenannies. What began as a holiday tradition from the Hax household became a hootenanny mainstay.
The poems are mini time capsules with their references to the political climate or popular celebrities of the moment — like the 2012 version with the lines, “On Newt and Michelle. On Rick, Ron and Mitt.”
