Dear Santa, â€śMy baby cosin caleb needs a new heart because half of his heart is not thayr. He ben so good. He doesnâ€™t need to have half a heart.â€ť
â€śI want a Xbox because I never have one before. I want a cote for my family in vitnam beause I donâ€™t want dem to be called. I want my mom and dad to stop fighting each other. Santa you our the best man ever. I was good Santa.â€ť
â€śA Christmas Carolâ€ť has always been one of my favorite holiday tales.
Thereâ€™s the wicked Ebenezer Scrooge with his miserly ways, the good-hearted Bob Cratchit and, of course, the three ghosts of Christmas who aim to change Scroogeâ€™s life forever.
I first became familiar with the story as a little girl when my brother, sister and I watched â€śMickeyâ€™s Christmas Carolâ€ť hundreds of times each holiday season on a worn-out VHS cassette.
We balked at the cruelty of Scrooge McDuck and cheered when Mickey and Minnie enjoyed a Christmas dinner with Tiny Tim at the movieâ€™s conclusion.
