"Spirit! are they yours?" Scrooge asked, horrified. He could say no more.Every year at Christmas I re-read A Christmas Carol. It is a very short book (not even a long short story really). It is my personal Christmas tradition.
"They are Man's," said the Spirit, "and they cling to me, appeaing from their fathers. This boy is Ignorance. This girl is Want. Beware them both, but most of all beware the boy, for on his brow I see that written which is Doom, unless the writing be erased."
- Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol
I hope in the year to come that you can work to erase ignornance in your life and want in the lives of those you love.
Merry Christmas - God bless us everyone!
