Ebenezer Scrooge is the principal character in Charles Dickens's 1843 novel, A Christmas Carol. At the beginning of the novel, Scrooge is a cold-hearted, tight-fisted and greedy man, who despises Christmas and all things which give people happiness.

Jacob Marley: Why do you doubt your senses? Ebenezer Scrooge: Because a little thing can effect them. A slight disorder of the stomach can make them cheat. You may be a bit of undigested beef, a blob of mustard, a crumb of cheese. Yes. There's more gravy than of grave about you. Robert Marley: More gravy than of grave? Jacob Marley: What a terrible pun. Where do you get those jokes? Robert Marley: Leave comedy to the bears, Ebenezer.

Want to beat the GOP in a landslide? How about just listing their non-accomplishments in ads: Vote for GOP if 1) You don't want people to have unemployment insurance. 2) You want to keep minimum wage at starvation levels. 3) You want 40 million Americans to go without health care. 4) You want women to be paid less than men for the same job. 5) You want *** people to all be thrown out of their jobs. 6) You want miners to die in underground explosions. 7) You want to work for Ebenezer Scrooge - you want workers to have NO say in their jobs - just do what their rich bosses want them to to, work the hours their rich bosses want them to work, for Chinese-level wages. 8) You want the children of disadvantaged Americans to die of starvation. 9) You want the elderly to work until they're either 90 or dead.

Renowned for his distinctive Cockney accent, Caine has appeared in over 115 films and is one of the UK's most recognisable actors.

I swear I just saw ebenezer Scrooge walking down the street...
Today's rant: Foundation has been laid for "Poor Prisons" The ACA states that all Americans are required to have healthcare. Americans that do not have healthy care insurance will be fined under their Federal Income Tax. Now, poverty still exists in America, just ask an employee of one of the big box stores (Walmart, Target, McDonalds to name a few). When these individuals have to make a choice between paying for their health insurance or putting food on the table, guess which choice wins every time. SIDEBAR - How is it that some Americans are under the impression that the Federal Government will pay for their health insurance if they cannot afford it? So the government's plan is to fine, or TAKE MORE MONEY AWAY from the individuals that cannot afford to but insurance. This one is included in your Federal Income Tax. Now we get the IRS involved with the enforcement of the fines. Guess what happens when you can't pay your income tax? That's right, the IRS has the ability to imprison that individual. I ...

12 Classic Books That Will Change Your Life (Lifespan.com) 1.To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee The book published in 1960 gained popularity and success immediately. It has won the Pulitzer Prize, and has become classic of modern American Literature. The story and characters are based on the author’s observations of her family and neighbors. She also tells about the story that happened to her near her hometown at the age of 10. The novel deserved popularity due to its warmth and humor, even though it touches the serious issues of rape and racial inequality. Atticus Finch, the narrator’s father, has become a moral hero for many readers and a model of integrity for lawyers. One of the critics, describing the novel’s impact says that To Kill a Mockingbird is probably one of the most widely read books about race-related problems in America, and its protagonist, Atticus Finch is the most enduring fictional image of racial heroism.” 2.The Trial, by Franz Kafka The Trial is one of Kafka’s best-known ...

I worked all night last night after that black - out in the shop. It had shut down all the running machineries in the whole plant, I guess. While more than half of the crew in our departnent were sent home, I was part of the crew who had to stay. I did not mind. I have to wait for my husband anyway, as we always take one transportation to work everyday. I slept very late in the morning today. So, I got up very late in the afternoon, in the same day. After I got up, I immediately raid the kitchen for foods, and ate my spaghetti meal to appease my growling stomach. It's not my favorite but it will do. Then after eating, I sat myself beside my husband on the sofa and watched the movie he was watching shown on TCM. It's "Christmas Carol" a movie based from the book of Charles Dickens. "It's a good movie," the excited greeting of my husband. "I've seen this movie a lot of times before," my bored reply. "Well, I don't understand why they're showing a Christmas movie in the middle of February," my husband's com ...

As a profound Bob Dylan fan, I have mixed feelings about the Chrysler commercial broadcast during the Super Bowl. Sure, I love seeing Dylan anytime and anyway I can, and as my friendly philosopher Anthony Vitale has said, “… there’s cool, and then there’s Bob – Cool ". I’ve always tried to be among the latter, and have inspired both my daughters to be the same. But, did he sell – out ? Has Bob Dylan, champion of the underprivileged and oppressed, finally caved in to Capitalistic Consumerism ? Is “ The Voice of a Generation ” now nothing more than a spokesman, a salesman’s voice for another, different and dissonant generation ? I don’t think so. I think he’s following the paycheck, and while that may be unsettling to the most of us, it’s what every artist, *** everyONE, does. First of all, it’s at least his third foray into mass-media advertising. He was also the spokesman for Cadillac at one time, and even for Victoria’s Secret, suave and debonair sex symbol that he is. ...

I also had a Coke Zero to drink. Then after I got done with lunch my Mom & I left the house & we went antiquing in Westminster. I bought a sweater , a Disney photo frame of Aladdin & Jasmine & I also bought a Disney figurine of Ebenezer Scrooge & Donald Duck. My Mom also bought some books & some other things. Then after that we left & we stopped at a gas station & got a snack. I had some corn chips & I also had a lemonade to drink. My Mom bought a bottle of water. Then after that we went home. I also talked to my best friend, Laura on the phone & then we got off. Then I talked to Jason for awhile & then we got off. For dinner tonight my Mom made me some chicken tenderloins & we ...

Is it possible that maybe Ebenezer Scrooge may have had a point when he mentioned something about decreasing the surplus population? I sincerely believe he did. There are too many individuals on this earth who are a waste of space, very little intelligence, choose not to work, expect handouts, and live comfortably off of the money that hard working people make and are forced to give to meaningless programs that fail to help the ones who deserve it. Race has nothing to do with this because to be honest every race and nationality is guilty of this. So by all means, let's decrease the surplus population who aren't productive in this life.
After an uneventful and a rather distasteful February 14th (going against another session with that Professor *** salivarius maximus in the 4th floor, I know I can not keep my sanity if I am to get another session with him, seriously), I think I need to get some VE-day spirit going on with me to boost my mood. Just for the sake of catching up after shutting down my cerebral cortex for the last 11 weeks. Think of it as some brain stretching and eloquency warming-up after a long nearly brain-dead slumber. This year's topic is a review of the past, just like the title, with a twist. For those unfamiliar, try google "A Christmas Carol". Seems unrelated? Look harder. Anyway, just like the title suggests, this is also a (very) lame attempt for me to deal with my past, just like Ebenezer Scrooge (*ahem* that's another hint!) but instead of dealing with ghosts, I'm dealing with myself - and I'll present one music after I'm done with the reminiscence. Mighty lame, isn't it? I know, I've suffered a severe brain at ...

Alright, I promised I'd do this today so i'll do it before I forget. As I'd hope most of you know yesterday was valentine's day, usually my holiday theories are negative so i'll keep it to a minimum this time. Lupercalia. Done. Valentine's Day is widely celebrated as a means of expressing affection or appreciation for those close to us, the kicker is that society monuments this day as a token to romance and other intimate feelings. This leaves people with high or low hopes for the day as a whole (I personally couldn't care less, if I feel like celebrating it I will) based upon the social status of a relationship. So, "what if the way people behave about valentine's day is a direct relation to their internal social well-being?" In average terms this means maybe if people are on cloud 9 or down in the dumps has something to do with how they feel the rest of the year. Let's use this example, I guarantee you know someone who went out of their way for yesterday's festivities in hopes of making that special som ...
In "A Christmas Carol," Ebenezer Scrooge is given the opportunity to review his past, to examine his present, and to get a good look at what his potential future will look like if he doesn't change his ways. While this is a dramatic presentation filled with ghosts and ghostly happenings, all of us have this same opportunity every day. We can review the past, examine the present, and imagine what the future might be like if we don't change our ways. There is an area of my life that I feel deserves to be explored in this way and after countless, restless nights and a recent situation I decided to take a look and make the necessary changes. Life is too short so we have to be wiser in everything that we do. God Bless Everyone!!!
I officially now hate Holidays. thank you retail for making me into Ebenezer Scrooge.

I feel like the Ebenezer Scrooge of Valentines Day.
The ship was buzzing with the crew wishing each other a happy valentines day and drinking brandy and rum. The only one truly bitter about it all was the captain. He locked himself away in the captains quarter, mumbling about how it was a waste of a perfectly good day. He was the Ebenezer Scrooge of Valentines day. "Who needs this rotten holiday? It has no point.." She jammed his hook into his mahogany wood desk before prying it out and having a seat with a sigh.
I feel like the Ebenezer Scrooge of Valentine's Day. $150 for what would otherwise be a $40 dinner? What a poor excuse for picking a man's pocket every 14th of February.
I think Ebenezer Scrooge had the right sentiment, just the wrong holiday. Valentine's Day? BAH! HUMBUG!
Just like Ebenezer Scrooge wanted to leave celebration of Christmas out of his life...let me leave Valentines ALONE!!!
I hate to sound like Ebenezer Scrooge but...Ba humbug! We shouldn't say we care only on Valentin's day or Christmas or on Birthday's. Everyday that we awake is a special day and we should show and say we care Everyday! Maybe I need a hug?
I'm fast becoming the Ebenezer Scrooge of Valentine's Day
Another hallmark holiday I can wipe my butt with. On to more important things like going to work. Sincerely the Ebenezer Scrooge of Hallmark Holidays.
I'm the Ebenezer Scrooge of valentines day. Bah! Humbug!!
VALENTINE'S DAY, my favourite day of the year. As with Christmas, Birthdays and that one with the chocolate eggs and the rabbit that no one's ever laid eyes on, I've spent the last 3 weeks choosing and preparing my clothes, ready to grace the streets and greet my fellow parisians (picture Michael Caine at the end of The Muppet's Christmas Carol. Haven't seen the film? Just think Jason Bourne vs Batman). For single people, just like Ebenezer scrooge (yes that's how you spell "Ebenezer") (f*** o**…) one could imagine a day like this to be not quite the merry affair stated on the tin. I, however, am fortunate enough to live in one of the least romantic cities in the world, so trendy smooching couples dramatically hair-lit on the corners of classy cafes ("relax baby, who's watching…?") are never really seen here. My dear reader, this isn't Berlin, you know. My favourite part of this day is the jaw-dropping special offers put on by parisian bars and restaurants. Menus have been completely restructured and ...

I reserve the right to be the Ebenezer Scrooge of Valentines day!
from the associated press: Around the country, this is shaping up as one of the snowiest winters on record. As of early this month, Washington, Detroit, Boston, Chicago, New York and St. Louis had gotten roughly two or three times as much snow as they normally receive at this point in the season. The procession of storms and cold blasts - blamed in part on a kink in the jet stream, the high-altitude air currents that dictate weather - has cut into retail sales across the U.S., the Commerce Department reported Thursday. Sales dipped 0.4 percent in January. From Dickens: Ebenezer Scrooge: There will be no more coal burned in this office today, is that quite clear, Mr. Cratchit? Bob Cratchit: Yes, Sir. Ebenezer Scrooge: Now please get back to work ...

14 habits of highly Miserable people.with exercises Honing Your Misery Skills Let’s get right to it and take a look at some effective strategies to become miserable. This list is by no means exhaustive, but engaging in four or five of these practices will help refine your talent. 1. Be afraid, be very afraid, of economic loss. In hard economic times, many people are afraid of losing their jobs or savings. The art of messing up your life consists of indulging these fears, even when there’s little risk that you’ll actually suffer such losses. Concentrate on this fear, make it a priority in your life, moan continuously that you could go broke any day now, and complain about how much everything costs, particularly if someone else is buying. Try to initiate quarrels about other people’s feckless, spendthrift ways, and suggest that the recession has resulted from irresponsible fiscal behavior like theirs. Fearing economic loss has several advantages. First, it’ll keep you working forever at a job you ...

THIS IS A MUST-READ The 14 Habits of Highly Miserable People Most of us claim we want to be happy—to have meaningful lives, enjoy ourselves, experience fulfillment, and share love and friendship with other people and maybe other species, like dogs, cats, birds, and whatnot. Strangely enough, however, some people act as if they just want to be miserable, and they succeed remarkably at inviting misery into their lives, even though they get little apparent benefit from it, since being miserable doesn’t help them find lovers and friends, get better jobs, make more money, or go on more interesting vacations. Why do they do this? After perusing the output of some of the finest brains in the therapy profession, I’ve come to the conclusion that misery is an art form, and the satisfaction people seem to find in it reflects the creative effort required to cultivate it. In other words, when your living conditions are stable, peaceful, and prosperous—no civil wars raging in your streets, no mass hunger, no ep ...
I am NOT looking forward to this Friday. What Christmas was to Ebenezer Scrooge, Valentine's Day is to me. It is a pseudo-holiday created by confectioners, florists and jewelers to entice people to purchase their useless products. Good thing I am a pathetic loser in the relationship department so I do not have to waste money I do not have on someone who does not appreciate it. On the other, no one is going to read, or respond, to this so what the *** am I posting it in the first place. I just needed to get it off my chest.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Charles! Although his acting career was cut short when he landed an audition at Covent Garden and missed due to a cold (and did not return to acting), he did give to the World such timeless stories we have brought to the stage many times over. (as will as lesser known plays) Some stories you may know, have seen on the stage or have performed: David Copperfield; Great Expectations; The Mystery of Edwin Drood; A Christmas Carol; Little Dorrit; and, of course, A Tale of Two Cities and Oliver Twist (my two favourites of his). Here are some famous characters Charles Dickens created for us: Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit, Oliver Twist, The Artful Dodger, Fagin, Bill Sikes, Pip, Miss Havisham, Charles Darnay, David Copperfield, Mr. Micawber, Daniel Quilp, Samuel Pickwick. Here is some tidbits of informaton you may not have known: - Not everyone like Charles's work (or Charles, for that matter!). Oscar Wilde, amongst others, had a strong and public distaste for Charles' wr ...

Which characterization of Ebenezer Scrooge was your favorite? Sir Reginald Owen (1938) Alastair Sim (1951) George C. Scott (1984) Patrick Stewart (1999) Mr. Magoo (animated - 1962) I know there were others, but these seem to be the most memorable.
A friend who saw my recent post about Alistair Sims being for me the definitive Ebenezer Scrooge, asked my opinion about George C. Scott and Jack Palance playing the role of Scrooge. This is my response: Didn't really like Patton playing Scrooge that much. I was expecting him to slap the Ghost of Jacob Marley and court-martial him for insubordination to a Senior Partner or something like that. Didn't see the Palance one, but have problems seeing him in any other role than the psychopathic gunslinger from Shane. That Scrooge would probably attempt to draw on Tiny Tim. The advantage of Alistair Sim is not only the great delivery of the lines and the amazing scope of his transition from cold-blooded miser, to sympathetic penitent to one of the best men in town who knew how to keep Christmas if any man possessed the knowledge, but the fact that I have never seen him in any other movie. He is Scrooge unmixed and unrivaled. IMHO of course.
Answer to our Conversation Quiz: Bah! Humbug! is an expression made popular by the character Ebenezer Scrooge from the Charles Dickens story A Christmas Carol. Scrooge is an angry old man who doesn't believe in the joy of Christmas or the spirit of giving. Literally, the word is used to refer to someone who tricks or acts in a deceptive way. In A Christmas Carol, Scrooge uses the expression to proclaim that Christmas is a fraud! You'll be happy to learn that later in the story, Scrooge sees the beauty of the holiday season, which we all hope for you, as well! Hope you all enjoyed the holidays!
Always my favorite Christmas Carol. 1938's with Reginald Owen, Gene, June and Kathleen Lockhart, Leo G Carroll as Marley's ghost and Terry Kilburn as Tiny Tim, A very Hollywood production but many warming scenes and a great turn by Owen as Ebenezer Scrooge. As Tiny Tim said " God bless us, everyone.

How Congress stole Christmas from millions of people. In the spirit of Ebenezer Scrooge, the U.S. House of Representatives voted to eliminate food aid for four million people. And, in the some vein, Congress let extended unemployment benefits expire for approx. 1.5 million people. Rep. Steve Southerland, Rep. From Florida, called the food stamp cuts he voted for “a defining moral issue of our time.” Senator Rand Paul said to continue extended unemployment benefits was a disservice to those who needed the checks. According to him, collecting encouraged them to do nothing. Adding to this 21st century Social Darwinism – which ascribes poverty to individual moral failings and being touched or not by angels – outgoing NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg commented on a series of recent NY Times articles about poverty that the young girl who featured prominently in the remarkable series “was dealt a bad hand. I don’t know why. That’s just the way God works. Sometimes some of us are lucky, and some of us ar ...
The miserly Ebenezer Scrooge is instilled with the Christmas spirit after a grim encounter with ghosts gives him perspective. Reginald Owen, Gene Lockhart, Kathleen Lockhart and Terry Kilburn. Released 1938 : What is a Christmas Carol?
Watched the Captain Picard version of "A Christmas Carol". He was quite credible, although the special effects weren't really necessary. But even today, Alistair Sim remains the classic Ebenezer Scrooge.
I posted yesterday on my timeline that my favorite Christmas movie of all time was A Christmas Carol (Scrooge) the 1951 version with Alistair Sim as Ebenezer Scrooge. Well guess what? The FX Movie channel on Direct tv (channel 258) is having a Christmas Day marathon of that movie. It's on all day long. I highly recommend that if you have Direct tv and the time during the day you cozy up to the flatscreen with a hot cup of cider and watch it. You will LOVE it! It begins again at; 1:30 pm 3:00 pm 5:00 pm 7:00 pm 9:00 pm 11:00 pm and at 1:00am tonight "My dear, Can you forgive a pig-headed old fool for having no eyes to see with, no ears to hear with, all these years"
Who is your favorite movie Ebenezer Scrooge? Alastair Sim Patrick Stewart George C. Scott Jim Carey (Voice) Reginald Owen
George C. Scott remains the bestest Ebenezer Scrooge ever. Feel free to NEVER argue this point with me.

Christmas Eve is just not complete without "A Christmas Carol". Good ole Ebenezer Scrooge!! He turned it around.♡♡♡
In film, or stage, who is your favorite Ebenezer Scrooge? For myself, it's George C. Scott. I feel he played the character best, of all I've seen. (which has been MANY) I have watched his made-for-t.v. version of A Christmas Carol, nearly every year, since it originally aired. Still as great as it was, new. Really, it's become better in recent years, because I've really come to understand many things the story deals with, much more in depth. up close, and personal, in fact.
As anyone who has seen Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol will know, the moral of the tale is that Ebenezer Scrooge is so besotted by wealth that he has, until visited by the 'ghosts' of Christmas, no sympathy for those unable to fend for themselves... Perhaps we should hope that something similar h...

A Christmas Carol is a novella by English author Charles Dickens, first published by Chapman & Hall on 17 December 1843. It tells the story of bitter old miser Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformation resulting from supernatural visits by Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come. The novella met with instant success and critical acclaim. The book was written and published in early Victorian Era Britain, a period when there was strong nostalgia for old Christmas traditions together with the introduction of new customs such as Christmas trees and greeting cards. Dickens' sources for the tale appear to be many and varied, but are, principally, the humiliating experiences of his childhood, his sympathy for the poor, and various Christmas stories and fairy tales.[ Dickens's Carol was one of the greatest influences in rejuvenating the old Christmas traditions of England but, while it brings to the reader images of light, joy, warmth and life, it also brings strong and unforgettable ...
The Holiday Spirit in the Christmas Cloud - In Charles Dickens' tale, A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge learned an important lesson that most of us already know. In order to get the best out of people, you need to give the best of yourself. For those of you who don't remember the 19th-century novella, Scrooge is a business owner who only cares about money and because of this, draws the disdain of his family and his extremely patient subordinate, Bob Cratchit. On Chris...

In celebration of Christmas, let's put a spin on A Christmas Carol where Ebenezer Scrooge gets a visit from the three ghosts. If you were to get a visit from a famous psychologist Ghost of Christmas Past, who would it be? What would he/she say to you? (Keep your answers for ghosts of present and future for the next posts.)
Photo Caption: Reginald Owen stars as Ebenezer Scrooge and Terry Kilburn is Tiny Tim in a screen shot from a sterling 1938 film adaptation of Charles Dickens' enduring Yule tale "A Christmas Carol." Much maligned in disability advocacy circles – and not without good reasons – the “invalid” son of Bob Cratchit, “Tiny” Tim was used by Charles Dickens to illustrate the downside of Scrooge’s miserly ways. Stop there, however, and the deeper meaning could easily be lost. See the story through and it is almost impossible to miss the conclusion that, in the end, “A Christmas Carol” is not about pity as much as it is about redemption. When given the opportunity, Scrooge did not double down and commit to the distressing fate that was revealed to him. No, when faced with the dire consequences of not adapting his thinking or behavior – including Tim’s death – Scrooge was compelled to change direction and eventually became what Dickens describes as a “second father” to Tim and eve ...
Dickens acquired a love to read, and the lad whose name was destined to become a household word in the English-speaking world devoured and read everything he could borrow. But his characters were based on real-life people he met and knew in the harsh world of the 1820s and 30s. The World Book Encyclopedia says of Dickens, "He came to know the streets and alleys of London better, perhaps, than any other person of his time. His walks sometimes extended 20 or 30 miles." In his mid 20s he became famous for his Pickwick Papers but it was his A Christmas Carol that touches our hearts at the Christmas season. In this familiar story about Tiny Tim, Bob Cratchit, Ebenezer Scrooge (remember, "Bah, humbug!”), Marley, and ghosts from the past, present, and future, Dickens brings together the elements of greed, depression, poverty, and hope. Many think that in this book Dickens was expressing not only his personal faith but was describing something of the journey that took him from poverty to riches. "God bless us, ...

12 Days of Bruce's Favorite Christmas Movies Christmas Carol (1938) NR Starring: Reginald Owen -Ebenezer Scrooge Gene Lockhart - Bob Cratchit Kathleen Lockhart - Mrs. Crathcit Leo G. Carroll - Marley's Ghost I do like all the different versions of this Dickens Classic but this is the very first one I saw. It is my favorite. Ebenezer Scrooge is a very successful, penny pinching, business owner with a heart of coal. He is working late on Christmas Eve. How delightful! His assistant, Bob Cratchit, on the other hand would like nothing more than to be home celebrating the holiday with his family. He is most hesitant when he asks Mr. Scrooge if he can have Christmas Day off. Scrooge, ever the workaholic, isn't too keen on closing up shop no matter what day it is. This Cratchit fellow is forever pestering him for tings like a lump of coal for the heater, or time off to spend with his family. Just before closing time Scrooge's Nephew pops in with an invitation to Christmas dinner. "Bah Humbug!" He thinks and turn ...
Who was the last ghost to visit Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol?
Spent last evening and all last night watching Turner Classics Movies. They showed A Christmas Carol (Reginald Owen 1938), A Christmas Carol (Alastair Sim 1951), Scrooge (Seymour Hicks 1935) and Carol for Another Christmas (Sterling Hayden 1964). I then switched to my DVR and watched Bill Murray in Scrooged. I always cry when old Ebenezer Scrooge realizes how inhumane he has become and changes his ways to embrace humanity. I have a new Christmas wish - that the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future visit the US House of Representatives and the Senate. Maybe it isn't too late for them to change their ways. Anyway, Merry Christmas everyone!

OK, I just have to say this, John Corbett, the adorable actor who does the Walgreen's commercials, do you think he has ever been in a Walgreen's? I have never been in one that wasn't a Dump. I have never been in one that had more than one harried and disheveled person working. I even gave it another try yesterday. Pandemonium and "we are out of that." There's a reason Dickens wrote about Ebenezer Scrooge! He went to Walgreen's and couldn't find what he was looking for and couldn't find anyone to ask!
Good morning Saskatoon! Today in 1843, "A Christmas Carol," by Charles Dickens, was first published in England. The tale of Ebenezer Scrooge's spiritual conversion on Christmas Eve has been a Christmas classic ever since. In 1846, in Canada's first telegraph message, the mayors of Toronto and Hamilton exchanged greetings. In 1917, the first National Hockey League games were played. All four teams played, with the Montreal Canadiens hosting the Toronto Arenas and the Ottawa Senators at home against the Montreal Wanderers. The league had been established three weeks before in Montreal. Quebec was also granted a franchise, but it did not operate in the first season. Either Dave Ritchie of the Montreal Wanderers or Joe Malone of the Montreal Canadiens scored the first NHL goal. The dispute comes down to the fact there is no remaining record of when exactly each game started.
A Christmas Carol As a baby-boomer growing up in Chilliwack, BC very early on I associated Dickens’ ‘A Christmas Carol’ with Christmas. Every year from when I first saw it on our family’s old black & white TV set, I loved it. When I read the book in school it was easy to lose myself in the ageless story. It has a perennial message that has a story and nostalgia that packs a powerful emotional memory for me…and probably for the majority of my baby-boomer friends too. The story of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge – a name that has become shorthand for the worst kind of penny-pinching – has been told and retold enough times to make it an irreplaceable part of our culture. Charles Dickens rode the wave of nostalgia for lost Christmas traditions sweeping the country at the time to publish an incredibly well-received fairy tale that reinforced the same themes expounded in his previous novels, namely the heartlessness of the industrial system and the needs of the poor. That was 170 years ago today ...

And Saturday night at 11:30, The Nite Show celebrates the holiday with their annual holiday performance of "Happy Christmas" with The Jump City Jazz Band featuring Anna Roman, Opus Trio, Divisi, and more.
Listen to A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Part one: Ebenezer Scrooge meets the ghost of Jacob Marley.
In Charles Dickens' classic tale, Ebenezer Scrooge refuses to take part in the joys of the Christmas season and only finds redemption after a ghost warns him that he will die, scorned by all, if he continues in his miserly ways. Perhaps "The Christmas Carol" has lessons for our own times.

Break Point Angry America Eric Metaxas BreakPoint.org As Christmas Day approaches, it appears that many of us are acting more like Ebenezer Scrooge than Tiny Tim. According to a new USA Today study, the share of Americans who report feeling angry or irritable has surged from 50 percent just two years ago to 60 percent today. A Harvard Medical School study from 2012 found that nearly two-thirds of American teens admit to having anger attacks involving the destruction of property, threats of violence, or engaging in violence. “Some are describing this as ‘America’s anger epidemic,’ ” says one New York news website. It cites unemployment, the economy, and for those who have work, overworking, as contributing factors. The signs of our nation’s irritability are all around us. Think of the political rancor, the everyday nastiness of the online world, the mall and workplace shooters, and even the so-called “knockout game,” where youths prey on unsuspecting pedestrians in urban areas, trying to kn ...

McScroogeMart. When I saw all the news about Walmart, McDonalds, Pizza Hut and other companies making employees work Thanksgiving and knowing that they don't pay their employees enough money to live on, I realized that America has become the same as 19th century England Charles Dickens wrote about in A Christmas Carol and his other books describing the appalling inequitable economic conditions that existed then, is now in fact the new reality in America. I'm not exaggerating this. Think about it. Ebenezer Scrooge was a soulless miser who cared only about accumulating more and more wealth without regard for the health and prosperity of his employees. The gap between the rich and the average American is worse than it's ever been. It's been reported that Sam Walton's heirs are worth more than the COMBINED wealth of the bottom 42% (126 million) of people in America! The top 1% own and control more than 70 % of all the wealth in America. That is the definition of economic oppression. I heard a line in a movie ...
Sometimes life gives us a brief glimpse into our future. Like Ebenezer Scrooge we are granted a brief insight into what might become of us if we live life as we currently do. Through the actions and behavior of others we are granted this reflection of ourselves and given the chance to choose differently. Today was mine and I choose to stray from the path.

"I can think of no greater welfare, than a night of uninterrupted sleep" ~ Ebenezer Scrooge
Disney's A Christmas Carol Disney's A Christmas Carol might have been better titled Dickens' A Christmas Carol as screenwriter/director Robert Zemeckis has very faithfully adapted the classic short story by blending the original text, as set similarly in the outstanding 1951 version starring Alistair Sim as Ebenezer Scrooge, with the exhilarating visual style achieved through the digital motion-capture animation technique that he established with The Polar Express in 2004. This time, instead of Tom Hanks, we have the rubber-faced, Jerry Lewis-esque, comedian Jim Carrey playing the various ages of Scrooge, as well as all three of the ghosts of Christmas who visit him. I am not a fan of the default Carrey performance in the kind of broad, slapstick comedy films that made him a household name but here he proves, as he has done before with The Truman Show, Man On The Moon and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, that he is in fact a very facile character actor capable of bringing great depth and nuances to ...
Who is John Galt? I've been re-reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand lately. It struck me how a book that is one of my favorites, and with many of whose philosophical tenets I sympathize, can be atheistic, and specifically anti-Christian. How can I agree with Ms. Rand on many points, but still maintain my belief in God and continue to worship Jesus as my Savior? As I've thought about it, here are a few points that Ms. Rand had wrong about Christianity (but in fairness, many Christians hold these beliefs). I don't intend this to be an exhaustive list and I hope I'm not offending anyone, just some thoughts of my own based on my position as a Christian and a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. 1) Compulsion. This idea seems to be showing up more in modern churches who believe that government holds the solutions to poverty and suffering. By forcing one man to give money to his neighbor, we destroy both the charitable spirit of the giver (Ebenezer Scrooge: are there no workhouses?), an ...
If Sarah Palin wants to end the "War" on Christmas, perhaps she should start with the war on Thanksgiving. She can start by railing against stores that open on Thanksgiving day, when families should be eating turkey. This forcing of employees to give up on their families reminds me of Bob Cratchit and Ebenezer Scrooge. So much for family values.

The first prisons were in fact, housing for slaves working on farms in Ancient Rome. The slaves did nothing wrong, they were merely sentenced by circumstance to a life of hard labour, chained at the ankles by day, and locked in a cage at night. Those free Roman citizens who were charged with a crime would only spend a few days or weeks in a jail-type holding cell, before they were tried and released, or executed, banished, etc. It would have been hard for the Romans to justify the expense of keeping a person incarcerated unless they can be made to perform economically useful slave labour. There was a resurgence of prisons with the industrial revolution. When Ebenezer Scrooge remarked "Are ther"e no prisons? Are there no workhouses?" he was essentially taking about the same thing. One of these prisons were debtors prisons. Those that couldn't pay off their debts were placed in prison, where they were somehow expected to come up with the money to pay off their debts, plus accumulating interest. Remarkably, ...

I see Bill O'Reilly , so angry that his tax money is going to people's healthcare. He's stewing in his own anger. That anger is eating away at him, I love it. Excerpt from Chris Matthews new book - In 1983, Democrat speaker Tip O'Neill said "Republican politicians have no concern, no regard, do not care about the plight of the common man. They are a collection of Ebenezer Scrooge - who's programs are for the selfish, the greedy and the affluent. They're cold, mean and they have ice water for blood".
I am just curious... I see all these posts about the Affordable Care Act that was signed into law 2 years ago... Why wasn't it fought then? Why hold America hostage now? Its because the people who are fighting it and grasping at straws are looking for ways to hold this country hostage.. In the words of "Ebenezer Scrooge" (who was the first Republican I can remember) "If the poor are starving, let them starve... It will decrease the surface population" That should be on this congresses creed...
Not sure how I feel about this, but I once again took the kid in for his flu shot. (I haven't had one in 5 or 6 years, which, coincidentally, is how long it's been since I had the flu). Anyhoo, since the form I filled out asked if insurance would cover it, (no, or at least I didn't feel like turning it in), I assumed there was a fee. Tried to settle up and was told "No charge, the State of South Dakota picked it up." As if the State is some mysterious benefactor, buying a Christmas goose for every kid, out of their own pocket, and anonymously, like Ebenezer Scrooge. I wish I could've just paid for it myself. I'll guarantee the cost of that $20 shot at least DOUBLED to $40 after running our tax dollars through the state administration and bureaucracy. If it came from a federal grant, administered through the state, double it again. That "Free" flu shot doesn't sound so cheap, does it? Think about this as you examine the withholding on your next, rapidly diminishing paycheck.

You can't compare the modern GOP to Ebenezer Scrooge. He found his heart at the end. These guys never had one to begin with.
Sounds like a character out of Dickens... Ebenezer Scrooge, perhaps?
