A Christmas Carol

A Christmas tradition...A Christmas Carol. 

We are all familiar with the story. 
Written by Charles Dickens.  Born on February 7, 1812 in the UK. 
He started writing the story in September of 1843 and completed it in six weeks.  The book was then published on December 17, 1843. 
A story of a bitter old man.  Ebenezer Scrooge.  He gets visits from Jacob Marley and the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. 

Here are a few quotes from Charles Dickens...

"I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.  I will live in the past, the Present, and the Future.  The spirits of all three shall strive within me.  I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!"                                  

""Bah," said Scrooge, "Humbug."

"God bless us, every one!"
Here is a link to the Disney preview of the movie A Christmas Carol from a few years ago.  Definitely worth a repeat viewing this Christmas season.

Merry Christmas.
