I read "A Christmas Carol" when I was still in school and I have even written a script based on it for a Christmas play but this animation is really, really good. My family and I were mesmerized. It should be watched every Christmas so that we will always remember that life is short and there's no time to be a scrooge. I wish I could feel as alive and joyful and generous as Scrooge was (when he found out he wasn't dead), not just once a year but everyday. Someone told me Tangled (or Rapunzel) is funny and nice but I found it so very boring. Despicable Me is more my cup of tea because it made me laugh all the way.
