Christmas Scrooges

If you've never read (I know most of us have seen) Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, don't wait another Christmas to read it. If you love great writing and tale telling, here's one of the best. Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Christmas does a fun reversal of the story with Scrooge doing acts of kindness from the beginning and ruining the whole story and putting actors out of work at Christmas. While I'm talking about scrooges, another of my favorites about a scrooge redeemed is George Eliot's Silas Marner.
