Merry Christmas

“Scrooge was better than his word. He did it all and infinitely more…He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man as the good old city knew, or any other good old city, town, or borough. Some people laughed to see the alteration in him, but he let them laugh, and little heeded them, for he was wise enough to know that nothing ever happens on this globe for good at which some people did not have their fill of laughter in the outset…

It was always said of him that he knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive posessed the knowledge. May that truly be said of us, and all of us! And so, as Tiny Tim observed, God bless Us, Every One!”

Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
