Merry Christmas and good will towards women and men! Of course I had to conclude #25DaysofCreepmas with the granddaddy of them all. Shape shifting doorknockers, ghosts, time traveling, and foreseeing death? Dickens wrote a pretty nasty tale in order to inspire cheer and humility on December 25th. There’s a ton of adaptations and follow up stories to this classic, and each have their own weight to add to the heady novel. If there’s only one ghost story you choose to read next Christmas, make it this one. There’s a reason why it’s still engrossing readers and filmmakers. Its messages are timeless and are more important now than ever. Treat everyday like it’s Christmas and love those around you (25/25).
