Christmas is close - very close. We're well into the busy December holiday season. By this point, many of us long for something more - more than shopping, planned gift giving and hectic social gatherings.
Most of us are familiar with Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, a timeless classic for the Christmas season. Maybe we read the story at some point, or we've seen a film or theatre version of the work that Dickens wrote in 1843. After all these years, why does A Christmas Carol still resonate with us, no matter our walk of life? I think it has something to do with love, family, and our common humanity.
