Feliz Navidad!

"A merry Christmas, uncle! God save you!" cried a cheerful voice. It was the voice of Scrooge's nephew, who came upon him so quickly that this was the first intimation he had on his approach.
"Bah!" said Scrooge, "Humbug!".


He had so heated himself with rapid walking in the fog and frost, this nephew of Scrooge's, that he was all in a glow; his face was ruddy and handsome; his eyes sparkled, and his breath smoked
again.


"Cristmas a humbug, uncle!" said Scrooge's nephew. "You don't mean that, I am sure". "I do", said Scrooge. "Merry Christmas! what right have you to be merry? what reason have you to be merry? You're poor enough."

"Come, then", returned the nephew gaily. "What right have you to be dismal? what reason have you to be morose? You're rich enough".

  1. What a beautiful Christmas tale! This is one of my favorites. We should read it as a ritual each holy night. I can imagine the old-poor of soul-Scrooge facing his fate while following the three spirits of the night as if he where alive. In fact, I can hear his trembling voice saying: Bah! Paparruchas!!! ja, ja, ja. Feliz Navidad a todos!

  3. Feliz Navidad, que los hados te sean favorables en este mes frio de Febrero.Este cuento está ya tan manido, es el de Dickens, ¿verdad?, ya eso no se lleva, ahora lo que interesa es la puta realidad, los cotilleos, que si Epi y Blas salieron del armario,que si Twinky Dinky es gay, que la Bella Durmiente tenía mal aliento y el principe no llegó a darle el beso, que Blancanieves le dio la mano a la bruja y se tomó el codo, además de que le crecieron enanos, los Fraguel Rock fueron explotados en su tiempo, la abeja maya se tiño de morena, el abuelito de Heidi nunca pudo decirle los sonidos que ella oía porque era sordo,Pinocho le contó a Zapatero como decir mentiras sin que le creciera la nariz, cambio de librarse de PP grillo..
    En definitivo, que estás desfasado.
