It's not what you think.
I'm not in a bah humbug mood. But I was. *g*
Hubby and I took in a local production of Scrooge this past Friday evening. I watch the movie every year--several versions. But it's different live. No matter how many times you see it performed, each one is special.
The children have such fun and are so into their performance. They combine the traditional story with songs from the musical versions to create something special. I have to say that Jacob Marley was particularly good in this year's version. A lot of energy for a ghost.
Taking in local performances, plays or Christmas pageants is a good way to get into the holiday spirit.
