My favorite Christmas tale is everyone else’s as well — Charles Dicken’s “A Christmas Carol.”
If you want to read it before Christmas, you can download a copy from Project Gutenberg. Or get a free audiobook from the same source. (If you want another Dickens Christmas story, try “A Cricket on the Hearth,” also available as a free download or a free audiobook.)
NPR’s “Diane Rehm Show” had a program the other day on “A Christmas Carol,” available as a podcast, on how the book rescued Dickens’ career when it was in the doldrums and helped revive the celebration of Christmas in England.
Don’t miss the downtown Sandusky “Christmas Carol” displays, which I wrote about here.
