A Christmas Carol

Have you read this classic? Or have you just watched one of the many movies made from the story? I must admit I had never read the novel. My husband and I read it to each other and enjoyed it tremendously. If you haven’t read A Christmas Carol or seen the movie it is the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly curmudgeon, visited by three ghosts who show him Christmas past, present and future, in hopes of saving his soul.  Of course it has a happy ending but the journey Scrooge takes and the people he meets are the stuff of dreams! And it is interesting to notice what parts of the original stay true in the movie adaptations and what are added. Each adaptation is a bit different. My husband likes the Albert Finney musical 'Scrooge' the best. I’m partial to The Muppet Christmas Carol.
