The Ghosts of Christmas Past

Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" is my favorite book and television show to watch throughout the holiday season. Now a few get silly, aka the Muppet's Christmas Carol or Mickey's Christmas Carol or even the one with Bill Murray. There are many many more. But those shows that depict the truer meaning of what Charles Dickens was trying to say are my favorites. You can read the book right here on the net. Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol."

I'm working on my own "book" about one aspect of "A Christmas Carol." I'm working on a min-book about my "Ghosts of Christmas Past." I've been up most of the night excited to go through all the old photos to find some real treasures. check out a few of the photos I found. Do you remember any of these toys? I still love Chatty Cathy and wish I still had her. I do still have the Barbie Doll AND I have a record player (aka. pre-CD player). LOL

"It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good-humour."- A Christmas Carol, Charles Dickens
