Lego Christmas Carol Set

Lego Christmas Carol Set via Instagram

Dickens’ A Christmas Carol is one of my favorite and this year we held our annual live reading of the story with friends via zoom.

For my birthday, the family gifted me this special Lego set. I assembled it last night and made a timelapse I should be able to release soon.

Listen to the 2020 Version of Our Annual Live Reading of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens [Audio] (1 hour and 20 minutes)

This is our annual holiday reading of this classic Dickens’ story. Recorded Sunday, December 20, 2020 via Zoom.

Each year we bring together friends, and family to read sections from a condensed version of the story — made by Charles Dickens himself — for his own live, public readings. Follow Scrooge, Bob Crachit, Tiny Tim and all the familiar characters as they both teach and learn what Christmas is all about.

Listen while you prepare your Christmas cookies or wrap your Christmas presents. Join the “spirits” of the season!

Christmas 2020 – 2 in a series – My Favorite Quotes from A Christmas Carol #1 – Old Marley was Dead!

Christmas 2020 – 2 in a series – My Favorite Quotes from A Christmas Carol #1 – Old Marley was Dead!

Old Marley was as dead as a door-nail. Mind! I don’t mean to say that I know, of my own knowledge, what there is particularly dead about a door-nail. I might have been inclined, myself, to regard a coffin-nail as the deadest piece of ironmongery in the trade. But the wisdom of our ancestors is in the simile; and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or the Country’s done for. You will, therefore, permit me to repeat, emphatically, that Marley was as dead as a door-nail.

Home School: Film Adaptations of Dickens' A Christmas Carol via Gresham College on YouTube

How do the different film versions of Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol reflect the politics and culture of their own particular times?

A Christmas Carol (1843) is the most filmed and televised of Dickens’ works. Many will warmly remember the 1951 Alastair Sim version, but how many are aware of A Carol for Another Christmas (1964), a propaganda film produced in support of the UN, or The Passions of Carol (1975), which attempted to highlight the evil of the pornographic industry? How do the different versions reflect the politics and culture of their own particular times? What makes a good Carol movie? Is it truth to the original or is it something else?
