"I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future!" Scrooge repeated, as he scrambled out of bed. "The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me."

Hilarious, touching, altogether delightful--I see why this story is such a classic. Well, not that I haven't seen it before: I saw a play adaptation at the theater as a child, and the 1951 film adaptation, Scrooge, with Alastair Sim, has become a holiday staple of mine. I've long lost count of how many times I've watched the film, of which I can now say with confidence that, even with its handful of cinematic departures from the book, Scrooge captures and conveys the spirit of A Christmas Carol quite wonderfully.

Ah, blessed Christmasness.

And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One! THE END
