Fact of the Day: Christmas Carol

Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol not only as a good story, but as a way to revive the "spirit" of Christmas. It apparently helped Christmas become more focused on compassion, goodwill, and family.

When I was young and had lots of time on my hands, I used to read this little novella every Christmas Eve. Great story!

I loved reading that as a child, I wonder if that is why I think I am compassionate?
