A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens…

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!”

A beautiful book with beautiful writing and a powerful underlying message. No matter what religion you follow, the message in this book, while it is related to Christmas, is deeply spiritual and applies to all of humanity. It transcends all religions in my opinion. It is a timeless tale with underlying messages of empathy and human connection. The vivid descriptions of the ghosts were fascinating to me. I would love to read this one again to be able to fully absorb all of the details. Luckily, having three young children helps in this matter because I am sure that I will be reading this to all three of them in future. I can’t believe I waited to so long to read this one. What a delightful read!
