Favorite First Lines... A Christmas Carol

“Marley was dead, to begin with ... This must be distintly understood, or nothing wonderful can come of the story I am going to relate.”  

A Christmas Carol  by Charles Dickens

I watch George C. Scott as Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol nearly every year.  I also enjoy Focus on the Family's Radio Theater version as well.  Even so, nothing truly compares with reading the book.

Advent Blessings!

  1. I watch the 1954 version... can't think of the actors name right brain is froze from this bitter cold that has come down into the Ozarks! :)
    I have my favorite Christmas movies stacked up next to the television... just waiting for a free evening!

  2. Hi Joyful,
    We're waiting for a free night, too. My next Christmas movie is going to be the old Christmas in Connecticut.
    I hope you find time soon!

  3. We watch the Christmas Carol every year too.. Love it.. but my favorite is It's a Wonderful Life.
    Nothing better than a good Christmas movie with a cup of hot chocolate and marshmellow. yummy...

    Blessings to you from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.
