Christmas Past

The fascinating stories behind your favorite Christmas traditions


Do you have a great product or service? Christmas Past is happy to offer a variety of ways to reach thousands of Christmas-loving listeners and readers all over the world, all throughout the year. To request more information or discuss your product or service, please contact me.


Christmas Past releases episodes all throughout the year. The show’s “core” episodes arrive in the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas.  Each episode typically receives several thousand downloads and shares.

Podcast host Brian Earl can read your 30-second ad to your specification at the beginning and/or end of an episode. Because the episodes are released so closely together, you may want to take advantage of that by sponsoring the entire season or even developing an ongoing campaign of advertisements (e.g., a “countdown to Christmas” or “12 days of ___”) with me.


There are several ways to advertise right on this site:

  • Page banner ads that sit across the top of the homepage or article pages
  • Sidebar ads that sit alongside engaging content
  • Branded content: Your branded articles can appear alongside other Christmas Past articles
  • Promotional placement: Your product or service can appear in an article that features products or services of interest to this site’s audience

Join the chorus!

With hundreds of five-star reviews, it's no wonder that Christmas Past is one of the top Christmas podcasts ever! Rate and review the show on Apple Podcasts, and I’ll send you a Christmas Past sticker and a handwritten Christmas card to say thanks. Contact me for details.
