‘Tis the season of good cheer and you, dear listeners, are our reason to be merry! Once Upon a Times’ traditional hedgehog holiday has almost begun—but before the festivities commence, Mr. Redge has invited the Folktale Forest’s Society of Bards and Balladeers to give you a glimpse into the magic of Jolly Holly Day. So, with narrative expressions of joy and great glee they present the poem, ’Twas a Night Most Jolly Holly.
PARENTS, TEACHERS AND HOMESCHOOLERS: This episode was inspired by “Twas the Night Before Christmas,” to describe a holiday tradition from our imaginative land of Once Upon a Time. It demonstrates another important form of storytelling: the narrative poem. Poetry is a form of self-expression and it helps us understand and appreciate the world around us.
