Every month is a good month to treat each other with kindness, but hopefully the holidays inspire a little extra kindness in all of us, right?

So in this episode, we celebrate the season by highlighting some of the kindness shared on Reddit, often in r/HumansBeingBros. "Bro" in this case is gender-neutral, of course.

We begin with the story that actually inspired the creation of Endless Thread! In 2013, WBUR's Kind World featured a story about a man who loved receiving mail and needed it more than ever. It was based on this post:

Ben and Amory share a few other stories "Snacktime"-style, including one about the parents of a new baby who received a well-timed helping hand:

Also, a guy in The Netherlands who used a school assignment to create something that warms the heart... and body:

And the story of a Santa who went above and beyond:

Thanks for listening to Endless Thread in 2018, and may you all give and receive your own acts of kindness.


Thanks to Redditor u/majozaur for this week's artwork, titled "Best Friends."
