I am a sucker for Christmas shows. Whether they are on TV or a movie, they call to me. Maybe it is the desire to embrace things which speak of love and peace. When an email landed in my inbox this week for a new Christmas movie, I knew I had to add The Man Who Invented Christmas my watch list.
Of all the classic holiday tales, A Christmas Carol is a favorite of mine. There is so much woven into this Dickens story which resonates with us more than 100 years later. So a film that shows behind the scenes is definitely intriguing to me.
