Christmastime and A Christmas Carol

On Monday I attended a local one-man performance of Charles Dickens’ beloved story, A Christmas Carol. This story is one of my favorites to read during this time of year—and experiencing it along with other community members was a fantastic start to the week. I love this story. I love reading about Ebenezer Scrooge’s transformation from misanthropic miser to generous and good-hearted gentleman.

The holiday season is finally here! December is usually a pretty stressful month for me, as it is for most people, but this year seems to be going surprisingly smoothly. Maybe it’s because I no longer have finals to worry about, or maybe it’s because I finally caved in and did all my Christmas shopping online on Cyber Monday. Maybe it’s because of both. Anyway, this year I think I’ll finally be able to take time to think about how I can give back to others (which is something that I should do every year, but that I haven’t always made a priority).
