A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol | Charles Dickens
1165 posts | 877 read | 8 reading | 98 to read
Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. The register of his burial was signed by the clergyman, the clerk, the undertaker, and the chief mourner. Scrooge signed it. And Scrooge's name was good upon 'Change, for anything he chose to put his hand to. Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don't mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country's done for. You will therefore permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

I finally read this, after a fruitless eleventh-hour search last year and buying it after the fact. What a good story! It‘s more richly told than any movie version I can recall, and while a little wordy (as Dickens is wont to be) still a quick read. I will have to revisit this again some other Christmas time.

To my shame, I have not only never before read A Christmas Carol, but I have never before read Dickens. Somewhat wordy in places, due to writers being paid by the word back on the day, but nevertheless a classic tale, with excellent dialogue, and and prose that conjures up the scenes perfectly.

#DearDecember Day 12: This version of Dickens‘ Christmas Carol is gorgeously illustrated by Roberto Innocenti with #SnowIceSetting. I contrasted my post with two other versions of the classic tale: the one illustrated by Arthur Rackham and the Steampunk version of Zdenko Basic. See the contrast of the three very different artwork in my full post here: https://wp.me/pDlzr-aR1

I always enjoy this one. And it never ceases to amaze me how incredibly well A Muppet Christmas Carol follows the original. It's probably one of the most accurate book to movie adaptations I've seen.

A wonderful holiday tradition. Neil Gaiman reads A Christmas Carol at the NYPL, from one of Dickens' own prompt copies. A lovely holiday treat.

My first #holidaymovie of the year is also a family #holidaytraditon - watching Muppet Christmas Carol. Truly my favorite interpretation of Dickens's classic. Funny, large swaths if narration and dialogue straight from the book, and excellent musical numbers.

Finished the book while the cookies baked, and they‘re a little heavy on the peppermint because the dog knocked into my knees when I was pouring the extract out, but 🤷🏼‍♀️ Oh well. The scent has cleared out my sinuses real quick!

ljuliel Aren‘t those pretty ? I‘ve never seen pinwheel cookies made with colors ( other than brown and white) 5d
chaoticgoodhufflepuff @ljuliel Thank you! I split the white half into thirds, color one third red, one third green, and leave one third white. And then I tear pieces apart, laying them down kind of patchwork style, and then roll the whole thing out! 5d
ljuliel Well they definitely look worth the extra effort ! I used to do lots of baking at Christmastime. Now I‘m too old and lazy. I just buy cookies at the bakery but they‘re not as good as homemade. 5d

This copy I checked out at the library still has old style stamped card on the back page. Notice the first stamp is 1972! 😳

No matter how many times I read this story, it still gives me a warm feeling. The prose is a little old fashioned but it does not dull the shine of the story. 5⭐

I attended a small plate Old English dinner tonight with my mom and saw a rendition of The Christmas Carol put on in my local community theater. They served us in character. It was fabulous! #wintergames #TeamNutcracker and where does this fit a play made from a book? I hope it becomes a #holidaytradition

Just finished this novella; gave me all the feels 🥰

The hero of the story was inspired by A Christmas Carol‘s Mr. Scroog and the labor union for children and adult labor in London.

Katherine Bone branched out of her pirate and nautical adventures with this Victorian tale; her writing is still marvelous!

It just is not a proper Christmas season until I have a chance to listen to Jim Dale‘s incredible narration of this classic Christmas ghost story. A perfect distraction to end a tough day at the office. I highly recommend this version. I‘ve listened to a couple others over the years and this one is my favorite. 🎄🎄
