167 year old humbug

Happy Birthday to “A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens, published on December 19, 1843. 
A ‘ghosty tale’ from another time and place. - Christmas fiction or is it? 
`At this festive season of the year, … Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir.'
Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer
