Sheer delight; my favorite Christmas story, A Christmas Carol, and a fun Christmas poem I had to memorize in grade school, The Night Before Christmas -- illustrated by one of those great illustrators from the era of beautifully illustrated books, Arthur Rackham. Get it and put it away for someone for the next holiday season.

Christmas and The Christmas Carol are great reminders of the true meaning of Christmas and of how we should treat all mankind the year round.
I especially love this Calla edition, An Arthur Rackham Christmas. It is so beautifully illustrated by Arthur Rackham and I love that it also has one of my favorites, The Night Before Christmas, also beautifully illustrated.

This concise didactic reminds us how to appreciate the Christmas season, and with it, the holiday spirit. The well-known visions of the three Spirits of Christmas awakens in the reader, as well as the miserly Scrooge, the joys of childhood, the importance of family and good will to those around us. Dickens’ renowned and loved tale of redemption is granted unique charm by his evocative language. This is matched with his sly humour, which is rarely, if ever, conveyed in subsequent retellings.

I had seen numerous movie versions but this is my first time reading the book. I loved the social problems it addressed. One question Dickens asked, that was not answered in our bookclub discussion, was what can each of us as individuals do to help ignorance and want? I believe his answer was that each of us should be helping those in need in anyway big or small that is in our means.

My favorite holiday classic. I have read it so many times that I have lost track, between fifteen and twenty times. On years I don't read it, I am reading one of Dickens other Christmas stories. And I watch at least five different versions of it every Christmas.

It's Christmas and to feel more Christamassy and also admire a shorter work of Mr. Dickens I decided to return to A Christmas Carol. I know the story so well, but this is probably from numerous takes on it that I have watched - especially The Muppets.

Despite its universal appeals neither of these novels ranks amongst the best of Dickens. Nevertheless they should be a part of any decent literature collection

One of THE classics that probably most people on earth know. I read it every year around Christmas and never get tired of it.
Not the actual version I read last night but close enough!
