Christmas in July 2023: RECAP


Merry Christmas in July! Were you able to keep up with the daily posts during the month-long marathon? In case you were late to the party this summer, here's your chance to catch up. Below is a complete list of links to each of the discussions on creative TV & film adaptations of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."

This month-long list of adaptations is NOT an exhaustive list by far. From the dozens and dozens of adaptations of "A Christmas Carol," I purposefully selected thirty that featured a variety of programming and interpretations. A complete list of TV and film adaptations of "A Christmas Carol" can be found in the appendix of my upcoming book Tis the Season TV.

Thanks to everyone who followed along and to all who left comments. If you would still like to leave comments, please feel free to do so--the discussion doesn't have to end just because the marathon is over.  And, keep your eyes open--the expanded and updated encyclopedia Tis the Season TV is coming soon.
