* In the hilarious "Merry Stressmas," storyteller Kevin Kling finds that Christmas in his family usually includes some type of family disaster, but it provides a wellspring of memories as the family gathers again, undaunted.
* Former executive Greg Mohl trades meetings around the office for meetings of a more important kind as he embraces the role of Santa each year.
* Commentator Ken Harbaugh wonders at the perfection of the unadorned tree in his house--until his family breaks the spell with a decorating job that might qualify as a crime against nature.
