An appropriate time to read this classic, just after Christmas.
It comes with more sadness than depicted in the many films of the same name. Scrooge continues to see his deceased business partner Marley which shows that he misses his only friend; but he’s too mean spirited to show it.
Eventually the ghosts of Christmas past show him the light and he gains happiness through giving to others and engaging with them.
We are all social animals and being apart can bring sadness; especially felt during the Christmas period.
