A CHRISTMAS CAROL Challenge Conclusion

I did not get to all the versions, and didn’t even discuss (save Patrick Stewart) stage versions. But I did cover a lot of ground.

Conclusions?

Despite rewatching and discovering this many versions, I still love the story.

There isn’t a formula for what works. But the versions that work best don’t shy away from the difficult parts, and they lay off the sentimentality.

The message is as relevant today as ever, if not more so.

And so, a Merry Christmas to all. God bless us, everyone.
