If there is one book worth reading every single year, it would be A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. I simply adore the story of old Ebeneezer and his crotchety lifestyle. It still thrills me to see the change of this cold hearten curmudgeon to someone determined to make amends and spend his life in doing good. Maybe it is the hope that because of what happened that glorious Christmas morning, we never have to feel it is too late to change who we are, to mark a new path, to keep Christmas “all the year”. If you have a chance, get ahold of a copy and read it. It’s tiny, beautiful and full of reasons for hope. Merry Christmas!
