A Christmas Carol
by Charles Dickens
I have seen many versions of this story. The movies brought Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the ghosts to vivid life. I very much enjoyed reading this story for the first time. Scrooge was at his Bah Humbuggiest best and his change was complete and magical. The written word like the movies is a reminder to us all of the joy of Christmas and how important it is to keep that joy in our hearts year round. Love and joy, as Scrooge learned, are meant to be shared. It is through sharing that they grow.
