A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol is a great book to read over the holidays. I can see why it has remained so popular for 173 years. It’s very action-packed and so descriptive that you have no choice but to feel like part of the scene! Scrooge’s story is a great representation of what it means to find Christmas. His dealings with the three ghosts turn him into Mr. Christmas himself and the overall message that giving is better than receiving (or keeping) is timeless. His transformation happened in one night, but I’m sure that the end of this book is all most people need to get in the spirit.
