Comment: One of those classic we all know, but never read. This december I just wanted to read it, finally. The great thing is that I know the story in so many different versions, and it's so recognizable. It's a very short book, but it captures the true Christmas spirit. What I love the most is Scrooge's transition from an old, grumpy man to a cheerful and kind gentleman. Maybe the story is a bit old-fashioned, but it's a classic. Not my favorite Christmas story ever, but a good read for the time of the year.
