Are you looking for a short story to recite during a Christmas party or perform as a short play? Look no further. The World Codex Staff and Meredith Carson have written a great tale with dramatic potential in the short story, Christmas Spirit. Written in the believable voice of Ebenezer Scrooge, this captivating twist on Dickens' A Christmas Carol is sure to create a new Christmas tradition in many homes, drama clubs, and schools.
Meredith Carson unfolds the "Christmas Spirit" in a well-written, fast-paced, and delightful narrative. We readers and listeners alike sit back and let our imaginations fly. This page-turner keeps us wanting more. We cannot wait to find out what happens next. In fact, you may think you know where the story is leading just before you learn that you do not. In Christmas Spirit, we allow Meredith Carson to spirit us away from our everyday life and drop us back in time to our days of sipping hot chocolate while our moms read us special stories at Christmas time, and this is a special Christmas story. It is intriguing, exciting, and heartbreaking. All three make for a retold Christmas story year after year.
I love the narrative voice of Ebenezer Scrooge. The drama is wonderful and enchanting. I can easily see Christmas Spirit performed at parties and on the stage. Meredith Carson has written a story that will become a Christmas tradition in our homes and in our hearts. This short Christmas story deserves a five star rating.
