Our Christmas Eve tradition

Lionel Barrymore as Ebenezer Scrooge in A Christmas Carol by Dickens

I've listened to this every Christmas Eve for probably the last forty or fifty years.

Tomorrow night, do thou likewise.

We'll be sitting around on the floor, listening too.

You may be an undigested bit of beef, a blot of mustard, a crumb of cheese, a fragment of an underdone potato. There's more of gravy than of grave about you, whatever you are!
