Scared of SantaChristmas itself is filled with mystery. Most of the mysteries have happy and wonderful ends, but then again, some of these mysteries don't come from the usual Christmas sources. Not all surround the Holy birth, or even about the guy in the red suit. Some Christmas mysteries come from the minds the evil geniuses that created some of radios best thrillers.

We have included Christmas related episodes from Suspense and Escape, one of the longest running and most thrilling of all radio series. A few of the other episodes included in the collection:
