Santa's Lap: An Advent Calendar Of Spooky Tales


Every day this month the Londonist team will be pointing you in the direction of a Christmas present that (with a bit of luck) you won't already have on your list. Climb up onto our collective lap and we'll see what we can move from our sack to your stockings...

Our friends at One Eye Grey are counting down the days till Christmas as only they know how: by releasing one terrifying tale of twisted London folklore per day. The free downloads began this morning with 'Getting a taste for it', described as a fusion of Sweeny Todd and Dennis Nilsen. Head back each day for a new yarn, right up to Christmas Eve. Fun though the stories are, we've always found it difficult to giftwrap a download. So if you're looking for Christmas pressies (and why else would you be reading this), you could do a lot worse than buying all six back issues of the magazine from whence these tales came.
