Here is the Radio Boston rundown for Dec. 17. Tiziana Dearing is our host.

  • Boston shattered the record for most snowfall on this date, reporting over 12 inches of snow. We get an update on the clean-up in neighboring Quincy.
  • How are you embracing this snow day? If you have kids, did they get a snow day, or did the pandemic undo that tradition for you, too? We take stock of Boston's first real snow day this year with Beth Teitell, a reporter for the Boston Globe, and parent Quiana Agbai, who runs the blog and Instagram "Harlem Love Birds."
  • We celebrate a December snow day with an ode to our favorite holiday cookies! We take listener calls with James Beard award-winning cookbook author Dorie Greenspan, author of "Dorie's Cookies," on her favorite recipes this year.
  • We end our show with a tribute to Black Nativity, which is celebrating 50 years in Boston this weekend. Black Nativity situates the nativity story in an early 20th-century Black neighborhood. We hear from  Edmund Barry Gaither, the director of the National Center for Afro-American artists.

This program aired on December 17, 2020.
