This holiday season, open the cover of a Christmas classic and step into the world of Ebenezer Scrooge. Treat yourself to reading Charles Dickens’s Christmas Carol and then enjoy the movie too. My husband loves the version with George C. Scott. I watched The Muppet Christmas Carol while I decorated the tree. Dickens’ witty dialogue cracks me up and who doesn’t love to see the transformed Scrooge jumping on his bed for joy. It’s Christmas Day. He is alive to see it and promises to make a difference in the lives of those around him, starting now. Who is your Bob Cratchit and how will you keep Christmas this year? Start by reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. (There is also an excellent audio version by Patrick Stewart of Star Trek: The Next Generation fame in which Stewart plays each role.)
