A Christmas Carol

We had the opportunity to see the Christmas Carol at the Guthrie in Minneapolis, MN.
We went with Mr.Smith's class, Sam and Atticus' teacher. It was a fantastic production and the kids enjoyed it. It is amazing to me that with all the politically correct stuff going around, that A Christmas Carol can still pack the house. I say "God Bless".
A few fun facts.
A Christmas Carol was an instant success when published in 1843 selling more than 6,000 copies
The book has never been out of print in 167 years
The book, after being released in December 1843, was already adapted for the stage by January 1844
Dickens gave hundreds of public readings in his lifetime, including 127 performances of A Christmas Carol
Mr. Smith's class 2010-2011 Growing Lights Christian Academy
Many fun ways to take in the story A Christmas Carol.

The Movie, my favorite with George C. Scott
