It's time for Writer Wednesday, when I discuss another author and his or her book. For December, I am talking about some seasonal greats.
A Christmas Carol, remade many times for movies and tv, stands in its most perfect form in the printed words of Charles Dickens. It is many things: a glimpse into Victorian life, a cautionary tale against miserly behavior and greed, and a triumphant celebration of memory and tradition (Christmas past), good friends, family, food and fun (Christmas present) and hopes, dreams and wishes (Christmas future). Marley may have been dead to begin with, but this story is anything but-- 170 years after it was first published, it still dances with the liveliness of Fezzigwig's party. As Tiny Tim observes, "God bless us, everyone".
My best to you all,
