Norah Jones joins host Raina Douris

During the uncertainty of the pandemic last year, Norah Jones started a new tradition in her family, turning ordinary Sunday mornings into Christmas to comfort her, her husband, and their young kids. It led her to recording an entire Christmas album, called I Dream of Christmas. Norah Jones talks about her favorite holiday traditions and music.
