This past Sunday night I saw the most interesting approach to the play “A Christmas Carol”! An audience of less than 150 people sat on benches in Ebenezer Scrooge’s office, and watched as live performers combined with puppets (representing all the ghosts and the memories) acted out the wonderful Dickens tale. 

My favorite ghost last night was the Ghost of Christmas Past. Here’s a picture of her:

All this got me thinking about Christmases past, and I found a wonderful collection of blog posts about them in this past week’s contributions. 

Derek thinks back on his daughter’s evolution as a “party girl”:

May you find quiet time this holiday to remember Christmases past as well, and discover what you may from them. God bless us every one!
