The Christmas Carol

One of my favorite Christmas stories is Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The book itself is a
classic, and it has been adapted into multiple movies. In fact, the archetype of a character who
is grumpy and selfish appears in many Christmas stories, including those that are not a direct
retelling of Dickens’ work. This December, we are going to spend some time with this time-
tested tale of morality – and meet our own ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future.
