There are certain things that make Christmas… well, Christmas! For some it’s family sharing food around the table, kids opening long anticipated gifts, or maybe it’s the crisp winter days outside and the warm, toasty comfort inside. All of those things appeal to me, but Christmas just isn’t Christmas until I’ve watched my well worn DVD copy of ‘A Christmas Carol’, the 1951 film adaptation of the wonderful Charles Dickens Christmas story. A business man, devoid of humor and with no empathy for his fellow man is visited by three ghosts who set him back on the path of friendship, caring and humanity. If you haven’t seen this black and white movie it’s a fantastic way to get yourself in the mood for Christmas celebrations. I suppose this weekend might be a bit soon?….
What about you? What makes Christmas, Christmas in your house?
