On this day in 1857, the Sheffield Football Club was founded, marking it as the oldest association football club still in operation. Skate from Michele Gorman's holiday novella CHRISTMAS CAROL might appreciate this significance of this date.
Carol hates Christmas. Being recently dumped, she’s not crazy about weddings either. So her sister Marley’s nuptials, over the Christmas weekend, are making her positively Scrooge-like. When she arrives at the stately home in rural Scotland to find her three ex-boyfriends in attendance, Carol has no choice but to face her ghosts to discover what really happened in those relationships, learning a lot about herself in the process. As the snow falls outside and the fire crackles in the hearth, might one of the wedding guests become the harbinger of Christmases to come?
This wickedly funny re-imagining of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol will warm the cockles of even the coldest heart.
