A Familiar Tale

In my recent post I made reference to the Ghost of Christmas Past, which, of course, is a principal visitor in Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol." It was almost deliberate, in that I am reading that short story in few days before Christmas. Why? Because I always used to do so in years long past, and each time would learn something. I am now reading the tale for the first time in perhaps thirty years, and it's descriptions, observations, comment and humor are as fresh as ever. I recommend it to all, that all may laugh, think, and then learn.

"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."

Not a bad sentiment for this season.
