To celebrate the season, myself and six other bloggers have put together a Christmas giveaway. But as part of the treat, we’ll each be sharing a Christmas Story. Enjoy the stories and then fill in the Rafflecopter with what we each want for Christmas. Happy Holidays!

 

A Christmas Carol

 

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is one of my favorite Christmas stories.  I have to admit my earliest memory of this story is not from reading the book but from watching the movie.  In elementary school we went on a school field trip to watch Scrooge.  This was in the 80’s but according to IMDB the version I saw was originally released in 1970.  I had never heard of “Scrooge” before so I remember thinking we were going to watch a cartoon movie about a talking pelican (seriously I was really young lol).  But I was really surprised once the movie started and I remember being completely focused on the story (which is really hard at that age).  I did finally read the book and it is one of my favorites.

 

A Christmas Carol and its theme has been made into numerous movies and books. One of my favorite movie versions is the 1988 movie Scrooged. I think Bill Murray, Carol Kane and Bobcat Goldthwait are hilarious in this movie.  I also love this movie because this is one of the many movies my husband and I saw while we were dating, so it brings back great memories.  Here is one of my favorite scenes from the movie:

 

 

Now let’s talk about the giveaway!! We’ve put together a fun scavenger hunt and you need to visit each blog to find the correct answer to use as a Rafflecopter entry.  To make it easy for you, here it is:

All I want for Christmas is….books!  My husband asked me this a couple days ago and I can’t think of anything else I want. I do have an older version iPod that has been having problems lately.  But do I really want a new one?? Nah, I just want books!!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!! Now it’s time to visit my friends to get more chances to win:

      I also loved Jim Carey’s version! I hope you get to watch Scrooged, it’s pretty good for a modern day version. Thank you for hosting this giveaway!!

      I hope you enjoy it Kai. It’s really funny and still has the great message of the original Christmas carol.

  1. I’ve never seen A Christmas Carol. It always reminds me of my sister when I hear it, as her name is Carol. Kids at school sometimes joked about that around christmas time. I never really was a fan of watching movies so I guess that’s why I never watched it.

    Thanks for the giveaway and the fun scavenger hunt!

      My niece is name Noelle so she was always teased by everyone singing “the first noel”. So I can imagine how tiresome that was for your sister. Thanks for stopping by and good luck!
