] I suppose one of the things that irritates me a little about ACC is the focus on the DAY - everyone is nice to everyone at Christmas, people give donations to charity at Christmas etc etc - when doing a little of the same for the rest of the year might improve other people's lives considerably more...

It's cynicism, babe ;-p As you know, I have my own little cynicism thing going, but not about Christmas, and certainly not about ACC. The end clearly shows that, though Christmas was the time of Scrooge's rebirth, he was able to keep that spirit of good will throughout the year. It is a story of hope and redemption. It's charming and witty and altogether delightful. AND it takes place during my favorite time of the year. What more could I ask? I don't think CD was trying to change the world, just write an enjoyable little "ghost" story. Obviously, he struck a chord. ;-)
