A Dickens Christmas

“Christmas was close at hand, in all his bluff and hearty honesty; it was the season of hospitality, merriment, and open-heartedness; the old year was preparing, like an ancient philosopher, to call his friends around him, and amids the sound of feasting and revelry to pass gently and calmly away.”
