A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is one of the best stories of all time, bar none. Captivating, uplifting, edifying and, above all, very very satisfying. What more could you ask of a ghost story? If you've never seen or read it, here's your chance, in an easy, award-winning animated version with subtitles. Bring the whole family. You'll be 100% in the spirit of the season by the end, and for some time after, I promise. Happy Holidays.
