A Christmas Carol for You

Anytime I need to get into the holiday spirit I just read or watch a version of  "A Christmas Carol," by Charles Dickens. I love the idea of someone changing for the better, even a crusty old grump like Scrooge.

Thank you, Charles Dickens, for this story of redemption. I love that you remind us there is hope in humanity and for everyone.

Here are some good versions . . .

One of the old school movies. Love it!

Fell in-love with the book in high school.
 My mom bought a second-hand copy and handed it to me.
I will always be grateful!

My favorite "captain" and the sexiest Scrooge I've ever seen!

Love the old fashioned pictures here.

This one looked like a photograph, not a painting.

My favorite version of all.
Nobody does sarcastically mean like Bill Murray.

Watched this as a kid.
Loved it.

May you have a very Merry Christmas!
I hope you get a chance to read or watch a version of "A Christmas Carol" this year.

"God bless us, every one!"

  1. So true, what a great theme and story for all of us to read or watch!

    I bet my daughter would like Scrooged, I'll check Netflix.Thanks for the reminder!

  2. I just read the book last month and loved it. We also recently watched Disney's A Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey. It was really good and actually followed the book really well.

  3. Scrooged is the best! Anything with Bill Murray. But... I just watched the new Disney version of the Christmas Carol and it was very, very faithful to the book. But it was really dark for my kids.
