A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens is my first thought when someone says "Christmas". The book has been adapted in countless movie versions, referred to on TV shows, mentioned in books, plays, and graphic novels. Most people probably even have a favorite version of the movie (I'm partial to a few very, very OLD live action versions, but I think Mickey's Christmas Carol was how I first learned the story.)
In 2017, The Man Who Invented Christmas was released, and it has become another favorite of mine, telling the story of Dickens as he was writing A Christmas Carol.
If you haven't read, listened to or watched any version of the movie recently, this is your push! Choose your favorite version - book, audio, movie - read/watch it (again?) and tell your partner what you thought of the story.
In a letter to your partner, tell your partner:
The letter to your partner can be handwritten or typed, you can use stationery or plain paper. It's all up to you, sender's choice.
I'm setting this up very early, and leaving the sign up/send by until later in December, to give you all a chance to find versions of the story and read/watch them. In the USA, you can probably find a few versions available at the library or through apps like Hoopla. Amazon Prime or IMDB may also have free versions to view. Amazon has ebook and audioboook versions for around $1 each, and Disney Plus has the Mickey version, the Muppet version, and the Jim Carey version. It's everywhere! :)
Feel free to post links in the comments below if you find links to versions of the book/movie, especially if they are free or inexpensive to help others out.
If you have a favorite version, you can link that as well. :)
If you have any questions or comments please send me a PM and I'll respond as soon as I can. If anyone is interested in an EMAIL version of this swap, please let me know that too - email doesn't get slowed down by the post office, and we can include weblinks, so it could be helpful. :)
