‘Twas Two Nights Before Christmas…
Posted by Dirck on 23 December, 2016
I’ve mentioned previously, at roughly twelve-month intervals, that I’m a devotee of Dickens’s A Christmas Carol, to the extent that I’ve actually read it (gasp!). However, I am happy with a relatively passive enjoyment of the work– I’m not what one might call obsessed with it. Unlike the poor soul behind today’s filched film, who appears to have spent an awful lot of effort in composing a fugue and variations on the subject. If you can’t enjoy it, at least be astonished:
For my part, I’ll be watching dear old Alastair Sim again tonight, in what I hold to be the definitive version. But that’s merely my opinion. Stay warm, be of good cheer, and keep the day in your hearts throughout the whole of the year. I’ll see you next week.
