Merry Christmas to everyone!

I'll leave you with a quote my priest put in his sermon tonight:

Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all, and infinitely more; and to Tiny Tim, who did not die, he was a second father. He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough, in the good old world.

Some people laughed to see the alteration in him, but he let them laugh, and little heeded them; for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happened on this globe, for good, at which some people did not have their fill of laughter in the outset; and knowing that such as these would be blind anyway, he thought it quite as well that they should wrinkle up their eyes in grins, as have the malady in less attractive forms. His own heart laughed: and that was quite enough for him.


May your heart laugh this Christmas season. *hugs*

I knew I recognized the start of that immediately! The first paragraph is from A Muppets Christmas Carol. <3 Although, lovely quote.

Merry Christmas!

Indeed, the entire quote is from Dickens' original novella, A Christmas Carol, of which the Muppet version is my favorite adaptation! :)

Ah see, figured it might be! I should read that before December is up, it's sitting on my Kindle.

If you like the Muppet one, you'll love the original. Let me know what you think after you've gotten to it.

A most excellent passage. That's one of my favorite Christmas tails (the George C. Scott version being my absolute favorite rendition).

A very blessed Christmas to you and Dan, filled with laughter and love.

We had a lovely Christmas, and I'm going to watch the George C. Scott film for the first time sometime this week (we planned to watch it before Christmas but didn't have time). I'm excited!

*hugs*
