Many years ago, D’s sister gave him a facsimile copy of Charles Dickens’ original A Christmas Carol. Each year since then, D has read the story to me at Christmastime.
Also many years ago, I made this little Dickens village. This Christmas, it’s the mantel decoration. A piece of sparkly black net makes stars or snowflakes in the night sky.
If you have eagle eyes, you will see “Scrooge and Marley’s”, “Candlemaker”, “Butcher”, and “Crachit.”
There is the butcher with the turkey, Scrooge with Tiny Tim (with his crutch), a couple of boys having a snowball fight, and carollers. Missing from the scene are all the ghosts.
I’m linking to these lovely party hosts:
