A Christmas Carol- Stage and Screen

The Big Guy and I have a few holiday traditions that we've adopted over the past few years. Two of those traditions involve A Christmas Carol.

The weekend after Thanksgiving we put up our Christmas decorations. Once that's done and the house is all festive, we sit down with some hot chocolate or spiced cider and we watch the Muppet version of the movie. This tradition is actually one that my husband has been doing for a very long time. I love the innocence of the movie and the changes that were made so that the story would be better for children. It's become how we kick off the holiday season.

Our second tradition is going to see a live production at the Indiana Repertory Theatre. I've mentioned the IRT before, and this is one of the performances that makes me excited to have season tickets. There are always slight differences from year to year, but we always love it. If you're in Indianapolis this season, take a look at their website ( for tickets.
