More than a 100 years after his death, Charles Dickens is still entertaining readers with his classic "A Christmas Carol." Gather the family around for a wonderful journey through time with this life affirming tale, excellent for reading aloud on Christmas Eve. You know the story..... Ebenezer Scrooge is a bitter old man who "will keep Christmas in my own way", which is not at all. People cringe when they see him coming. Dogs cower. But that is all about to change. He is visited by the ghost of his deceased partner, Jacob Marley, dragging the chains he has forged for himself in life, and learns that it is not too late for him. In "Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol," Scrooge is visited by three more spirits that Christmas eve. His past, his present and his future. Each take him on a fantastic journey through time and space, showing him how his ways are wrong, and what will happen if he doesn't change. Scrooge goes through subtle changes at first, is humbled by the spirits, and then he is transformed from a bitter man to a caring human being. His new found appreciation of mankind is contagious. In the end, "A Christmas Carol" teaches that the changes not just so he can have a better after life, but because he really cares about life and humanity. A timeless classic, "Christmas Carol" has much to teach us today!
