This is, hands down, my favorite Christmas movie ever. I’m watching it right now. There are so many remakes, but my favorite version is the one starring George C. Scott (from 1984). My folks taped it off of the TV when I was in grade school, and we used to wear that VHS out every year – I even remember the IBM commercials we’d fast-foward through. Charles Dickens was a genius – besides the biblical Christmas, A Christmas Carol is my favorite Christmas story. Redemption, forgiveness, love, mercy, generosity, social justice….it’s all in there. Read it or rent it this year if you haven’t yet!
What’s your favorite flick to watch, or book to read, this time of year?
