A Charles Dickens Christmas

One of the best-beloved stories of Christmas was published in 1843 by English author Charles Dickens.  Weaving a masterful tale of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge with the ghost of his old partner, Marley, and his shivering clerk, Bob Cratchit, Dickens spirits us on a memorable visit to the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present, and Future.  We follow through scenes taken from old prints and theatrical performances, stopping to look in a few Victorian windows along the way, and finishing with my favorite chapter, the heart-warming story of “The Cratchits’ Christmas” and Tiny Tim’s wish, “God bless us, every one!”
