This is how Charles Dickens begins his story of the grumpy, greedy and rude Ebenezer Scrooge who built up his wealth with an icy heart. Christmas Eve’s approach bothers him the most as people in general become far too nice and emotional. In addition, his bookkeeper demands time off. This annoying Christmas Eve will also be his turning point.
Sven Wollter reads this classic Christmas story as fascinated, frightened and warmed readers, listeners and viewers for more than a hundred years.
