Up in Jackson around this time of year you can climb aboard a horse drawn Austrian sleigh and ride through town collecting handmade chocolates from local merchants. NHPR's Sean Hurley went along on the Jingle Bell Chocolate Tour and sends us this.
Even though Kathleen Driscoll has to sit all day in a gazebo beside a roaring fire she says she has no trouble resisting the bowl of handmade chocolates before her. "I don't like chocolate," she says, "I'm not a chocolate fan. If it was birthday cake I'd eat it!"
