I guess I'm in a bit of a habit of reading a Dickens "holiday" story at Christmas time; I read A Christmas Carol last year. This one was enjoyable, but not as much as A Christmas Carol.

Some complain about how sentimental this one is; I didn't find that problematic or distracting, except perhaps for the very last paragraph or two. Other than that, a nice piece of classic Dickens. Some things were anthropomorphized, which I found funny and interesting rather than eye-rolling
