Bah, Humbug!

Watched A Christmas Carol yesterday. I think there are several movie versions on Dickens' book - this one was with Patrick Stewart.

No matter how many times you read/see/hear the story, it's absolutely a classic. Here are some memorable parts:

Fred's wife: Why do you never get upset at your uncle (Scrooge)?
Fred: Because I believe that actions have their own consequences.
-- aka good mantra to chant the next time so-and-so gets your blood boiling! ;D
'They are Man's,' said the Spirit, looking down upon them. 'And they cling to me, appealing from their fathers. This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both, and all of their degree, but most of all beware this boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the writing be erased. Deny it.' cried the Spirit, stretching outits hand towards the city. 'Slander those who tell it ye. Admit it for your factious purposes, and make it worse. And abide the end.'
The journey of Scrooge's change of heart, for it represents that the future is not laid in stone, and that we all have the potential to be better people and create a better future for ourselves and those around us.
And to end with, a beautiful quote:

"I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year."

May everyone find what they are looking for at this time of year.
