I spent last Saturday in one of my favorite Christmas stories, Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. For the last 15 years, the Village of Skaneateles, New York, has hosted a Dickens Christmas on weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The troop of actors portrays many of the most famous characters and perform scenes from Dickens’ classic tale.
Meet more of the characters I had the pleasure of encountering. Jacob Marley lamented about why he was wearing his chains and then broke out in Christmas songs. He had a great voice. I ran into Father Christmas and Scrooge’s nephew, Fred. The fiddle player provided the music for the Christmas Present dancing scene. Lastly, the Christmas Ghost who haunted Scrooge all day.
