it is a little known fact (though we are doing our best to promote it) that the *Entire* idea for Dicken's 'A Christmas Carol' was derived from events occuring during Charles dicken's visit to Upstate NY during 1842. Specifically when he visited Skaneateles. And the idea of the Christmas Spirits? They were originally named "Christmas Gin", "Christmas Grog" and "Smoking Bishop".

I am looking forward to the party at the Hollywell house, Clara can certainly throw a party. and she always invites everyone - even the Cratchits!
