"Now, the tree is decorated with bright merriment, and song, and dance, and cheerfulness. And they are welcome. Innocent and welcome be they ever held, beneath the branches of the Christmas Tree, which cast no gloomy shadow! But, as it sinks into the ground, I hear a whisper going through the leaves. 'This, in commemoration of the law of love and kindness, mercy and compassion. This, in remembrance of Me!'"
"A Christmas Tree"
I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas. As a special Christmas treat, courtesy of the Moving Image Archive, here's a 1910 film version of A Christmas Carol -- all 10 minutes and 25 seconds of it -- starring Marc McDermott as Scrooge. Enjoy!
