Classic Christmas Story Gets Makeover

HUFFINGTONPOST.COM - At some point in its history, Charles Dickens' 'A Christmas Carol' stopped being just a book and became a Christmas experience, a force of its own, bridging 1843 London to a 2011 Christmas morning through, not just its words, but its spirit.
