What's your holiday performance story?
The office talent show, the neighborhood caroling posse, the school pageant ... At holiday time we often sing, dance, and dress as shepherds. Did you bloom in the warmth of your audience's adulation, or freeze up like the snowman you'd rather be building? Did your holiday performance change your life or that of someone close to you?

Last Swim
Independent Producer Nanci Olesen has been swimming in Lake Harriet near her home in Minneapolis everyday since May. It's been a daily break from the responsibilities of her life.

Nanci tells us what her daily swim has meant all year, and what it means to stop doing it.
