Tale Weaver #99: A Dickensian Christmas 22.12.16



For me, Christmas is synonymous with Charles Dickens and various versions of his most famous character, Scrooge. My 3 favourite “takes” on the tale are: Alistair Sim’s B & W classic; Bill Murray’s Scrooged, and A Muppet Christmas Carol with Michael Caine.

Dickens’ commentary on the contrasts between rich, emerging middle-class, and poor are what make his stories, especially A Christmas Carol, so poignant.

I’d like you to weave a Dickensian Christmas tale. It can be a modern take on a 19th century theme, another look at Scrooge or character in the novella, a peek into the lives upstairs/downstairs or in the streets. Shop windows and shop girls. As long as the tale you weave has that Dickens’ Christmas feel. I think even Dr. Who was been there.

Tag your post Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie and Tale Weaver, Charles Dickens. Create a ping-back (link) to this prompt page. And, of course, Mr. Linky awaits here for your click.

Wishing you all the best of this festive season what ever holiday tradition you may follow.

    I don’t usually reblog my mlmm prompts, but I thought I would start a little shameless self-promoting.
