Okay, I started out reading Dickens’ A Christmas Carol aloud to the children a few days ago. We laboriously trudged through the first chapter. I keep thinking I will attempt Chapter 2 soon. I would like the kids to have a general idea of the storyline before we watch the film with George C. Scott.
I don’t know though. I beginning to think that enjoying Dickens as a literary read is overrated. And why bother when there are sooooooo many great Dickens film adaptations out there anyway? Maybe we’ll get by with the George C. Scott version and the Muppet version. Don’t tell the literary police what I’m meditating.
Meanwhile, tonight the crew gathered around youtube to watch . . . . . . . .
A Charlie Brown Christmas.
