TUESDAY, December 22nd at 7PM: A CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN WALES and Other Tales

"A Child's Christmas in Wales" is a prose work by the Welsh poet Dylan Thomas. Originally emerging from a piece he wrote for radio, recorded by Thomas in 1952, the story is an anecdotal retelling of a Christmas from the view of a young child and a romanticized version of Christmases past, portraying a nostalgic and simpler time. It is one of Thomas's most popular works.

"All the Christmases roll down towards the two-tongued sea, like a cold and headlong moon bundling down the sky that was our street; and they stop at the rim of the ice-edged, fish-freezing waves, and I plunge my hands in the snow and bring out whatever I can find."
