A Dickens of a Christmas
November 05, 2012
"Bah humbug!" Almost everyone is familiar with this famous quote from Ebenezer Scrooge of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I grew up on such book classics as this and Twas the Night Before Christmas. I anxiously awaited the TV cartoons like Frosty the Snowman and Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. There were no cartoon versions of A Christmas Carol until 1983, when Disney released Mickey’s Christmas Carol. After my son was born, I continued with the tradition, including The Muppet Christmas Carol. A Christmas Carol, the other holiday books, and movies were as much a part of my holiday as Santa, Christmas trees, and presents.
