Mr. Page owes a great deal to Charles Dickens for this "rich man finds Christmas, shares with clerk" story, but so do many others in this genre and that's not why I gave it such a low ranking. What disturbs me in this other-wise delightful holiday story is how exclusively the sign on one's goodness rests on material means. Our businessman doesn't become more loving and tolerant--he becomes better at investing his money in sick orphans rather than paintings. I'm not denying that it's a good thing ...more

I really liked this story. It is very much like Dicken's A Christmas Carol but is much sweeter. The wealthy old miser realizes his life is lacking the things that are most important and so decides to change his ways. He takes on the young daughter of his clerk to become Santa Claus's partner and the two of them distribute gifts to poor children who would not have gifts otherwise. His last gift that Christmas was to the little girl's family, a gift that would change their lives for the better.

This was a quick read published in 1899 and rather similar to Dicken's A Christmas Carol. It is the story of a successful man who gave up family and friends for riches. It was quaintly entertaining!

It is a short little story, very similar to A Christmas Carol. If you want a little Christmas story to read next year then this one might fit the bill.

Borrowed WAY too much from A Christmas Carol, but I had to give it 3 stars because writers had such a command of the English language in 1899.

A lesser imitation of Dickens's Christmas Carol.
