A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens
1143 posts | 869 read | 9 reading | 98 to read
Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

This has been one of my favorites since I first read it in the 4th grade and I do my best to reread it every December and it is always just as magical as I remembered. I have this wonderful copy so now I can explore his other christmasy stories.

Finished the book while the cookies baked, and they‘re a little heavy on the peppermint because the dog knocked into my knees when I was pouring the extract out, but 🤷🏼‍♀️ Oh well. The scent has cleared out my sinuses real quick!

ljuliel Aren‘t those pretty ? I‘ve never seen pinwheel cookies made with colors ( other than brown and white) 8h
chaoticgoodhufflepuff @ljuliel Thank you! I split the white half into thirds, color one third red, one third green, and leave one third white. And then I tear pieces apart, laying them down kind of patchwork style, and then roll the whole thing out! 8h
ljuliel Well they definitely look worth the extra effort ! I used to do lots of baking at Christmastime. Now I‘m too old and lazy. I just buy cookies at the bakery but they‘re not as good as homemade. 8h
chaoticgoodhufflepuff @ljuliel They were a bribe for myself to actually vacuum today instead of just using the swiffer! 😂 5h

This copy I checked out at the library still has old style stamped card on the back page. Notice the first stamp is 1972! 😳

No matter how many times I read this story, it still gives me a warm feeling. The prose is a little old fashioned but it does not dull the shine of the story. 5⭐

I attended a small plate Old English dinner tonight with my mom and saw a rendition of The Christmas Carol put on in my local community theater. They served us in character. It was fabulous! #wintergames #TeamNutcracker and where does this fit a play made from a book? I hope it becomes a #holidaytradition

LiteraryinLititz What a creative event! 3d
Bookworm54 I would say it falls into the whole holiday movie, book to movie point system, so 11 points? What do you think @Clwojick @StayCurious 3d

Just finished this novella; gave me all the feels 🥰

The hero of the story was inspired by A Christmas Carol‘s Mr. Scroog and the labor union for children and adult labor in London.

Katherine Bone branched out of her pirate and nautical adventures with this Victorian tale; her writing is still marvelous!

It just is not a proper Christmas season until I have a chance to listen to Jim Dale‘s incredible narration of this classic Christmas ghost story. A perfect distraction to end a tough day at the office. I highly recommend this version. I‘ve listened to a couple others over the years and this one is my favorite. 🎄🎄
