It's Official Now!

I wrote at one time, in a list of Holiday Traditions (or something like that) how it's not really the Christmas Season until I get to watch the 1951 version of "A Christmas Carol" starring Alastair Sim.  So,'s on tonight, 8PM on TCM!!

**This is the desert-island choice of the many versions of A Christmas Carol, with a magnificent, full-bodied portrayal of Ebenezer Scrooge by Alastair Sim that leaves everyone else in the dust. Lean and direct, this film's version of the story wastes no time trying to impress viewers with the magical nature of the spirits' visitations. Sim's commitment to the role is at times astonishing; his Scrooge's Christmas-morning ecstasy is a marvel of giddy technique.
 --Tom Keogh

Alastair Sim's tour-de-force performance as the ultimate miser, Ebenezer Scrooge, has almost single-handedly made this beloved version of Charles Dickens' story into one of the best-loved Christmas films of all time.

Cranky and curmudgeonly Scrooge learns the error of his unkind ways and is taught the true meaning of the holidays when he is visited by the ghost of his late business partner and the spirits of Christmas past, present and future.

"I will honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year"
--Ebenezer Scrooge--

I am so ready to watch the original black and white version of ready!

And I am pretty sure I could make something with the bed hanging/curtain thingies! Just another chance to upcycle :)
