Charles Dickens’s 'Christmas Carol' has a timeless quality that is as fresh as when it was first written. I've tailored this story to Tracy who, along with her sister and father, are plunged into hard times. Yet, the Christmas magic that changes their luck is "… found in the simile and my unhallowed hands shall not disturb it, or my story’s done for." Merry Christmas!
