9780141324524Title: A Christmas Carol

Author: Charles Dickens

Published: 1843

This is ultimate moral-story for Christmas. Throughout this excellent, fast-flowing, festive read, Charles Dickens narrates the story of a bad-tempered and anti-festive business man: Ebenezer Scrooge who hates everything related to this annual, seasonal event. First of all, we see him, and his reluctance to give his clerk: Bob Crachit, the day off, and finally locking up to go home.

He lived in the chambers which had once belonged to his deceased partner. 

Scrooge’s deceased partner was Marley. And Marley came back as a spirit that evening to warn Scrooge of three spirits which would take him on a journey through the past, present and future of Christmas. A journey which inspires and provokes the kindess in Scrooge so much, that he wakes up the following morning: a changed man.

Christmas-Based Entertainment: Carol Singing

Five Tips For Carol Singing:

1. Prepare Music Sheets for everyone that will be involved. You don’t want to forget your words!

2. Dress Up Warm. On a cold Winter’s evening, it’s going be chilly, standing about.

3. Make a plan of your Route. You don’t want to visit people twice or miss some houses out.

4. Lighting. It is nice to have some sort of illumination to see the faces of the Carol singers. Also: you need to be able to read your song sheets!

5. Practise Singing! Make sure you practise reasonably beforehand to really get to know the songs.
