I know, right ??!! When Dickens is describing the coldness permeating everything and the frosty on the breath of the people....and how cold Scrooge was inside and out...brrr !!!! I have to get a blanket !!!!! And then the arrival of the ghosts is absolutely terrifiying !!!! I have a version called The Annotated Christmas Carol and it has all kinds of notes and things on the sides of the pages.......One note it has is about the phrase "I'll retire to Bedlam.." According to my annotated copy "Bedlam" was slang for a mental hospital whose name was Bethlehem !! I find this stuff fascinating !
