Your HOLIDAY SOR-BAY: An American Christmas Carol

Here is a "HOLIDAY SOR-BAY" little spark of madness
that we could use to artificially maintain our Christmas spirit.

An American Christmas Carol is a 1979 television film directed by Eric Till. The screenplay is based on Charles Dickens' 1843 novella A Christmas Carol.

In Depression-era New England, a miserly businessman named Benedict Slade receives a long-overdue attitude adjustment one Christmas Eve when he is visited by three ghostly figures who resemble three of the people whose possessions Slade had seized to collect on unpaid loans. Assuming the roles of the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future from Charles Dickens' classic story, the three apparitions force Slade to face the consequences of his skinflint ways, and he becomes a caring, generous, amiable man.
