A Christmas Carol… by Charles Dicken

cover-xmas-carol-400.jpgChapter 1. Selected passages.

“A Merry Christmas, Uncle!” It was the cheerful voice of Scrooge’s nephew.

“Bah!” said Scrooge- “Humbug!” “Uncle,” pleaded the nephew.

“Nephew,” returned the uncle, “Keep Christmas in your own way, and let me keep Christmas in mine by leaving it alone. […]

“Don’t be angry, Uncle,” said the nephew, “I ask nothing of you; why cannot we be friends?” “Good afternoon,” said Scrooge. “I’m sorry with all my heart to find you so resolute-but a Merry Christmas, Uncle, and a happy new year.” (to be continued)

We cannot share the negative view that Scrooge has about Christmas as we do love staying with those who we love!!!

SGROOGE is a cold-hearted, selfish man, who despises Christmas and all things which give happiness.

“The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointed nose, made his eyes red, his thin lips blue, and he spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice …”

His last name has come into the English language as a word for miserliness and misantropy. Scroggie is  a “meal man” (corn merchant) who feels disgust for Christmas Traditions.

“Bah, humbug!” He said.
