‘A Christmas Carol’ on the Internet

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.

" MERRY CHRISTMAS!,MERRY CHRISTMAS!

I wander if Santa Claus will have the marvelous idea to give as special present to each democrat, A BRAIN!, so they can descern intelligently to vote republican on the next elections (if we ever get another elections).

But then that is too much to ask to the old fat guy, for I think he is fed-up with the politics around the world, specially the CHICAGO-CORRUPTED POLITICAL DYNAMICS ATMOSPHERE, FROM WHERE OBAMA COMES FROM!

Happy Holidays everyone!
