A nice part of every Christmas
on December 08, 2010
It is hard to make it through the Christmas season without hearing some version of this story, which makes reading the original at least once a good idea. The story touches on the real Christmas spirit of giving and selflessness - a nice reminder in this age of rampant consumerism. The characters are classic, perhaps even a bit cliche at this point (who doesn't think of Donald Duck when they read about Scrooge!), the story suitable for a wide range of ages, and the writing from a master. Hard to go wrong with this one!
