“A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens is both my favorite Christmas story and my favorite ghost story. I’ve read this book almost every year around Christmas since 1973, when I was a junior in high school.
I have also watched the 1951 version of the movie starring Alistair Sim countless times. In my opinion, it is the best of the movie adaptations.
My favorite scene in both the novel and the movie is miser Ebenezer Scrooge’s encounter with the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. The arrival of this third and final Spirit still gives me chills every time I read the passage in the novel or witness it in the movie.
