These are among my all-time favourite Christmas movies. The ‘spirit’ of Christmas is often ‘compromised’ because of the ‘business’ and busyness of the season. This year, Christmas 2020, the self-isolating we do to prevent the continued spread of COVID-19 also provides us an opportunity to go back in time; to visit with ourselves, in Christmases past; to see ourselves and the spirit of the season (aka the Spirit of the Christ) à la Ebenezer Scrooge.
On that note, a very merry Christmas and Happiest of times in the new year, to everyone of every Faith. I know the other Faiths wish us the very same during their special occasions.
It’s part of the Golden Rule, and that is the basic operative of every faith.
And it is very much the Christmas spirit.
