A Christmas Carol... retold

We welcomed Eliza Blackwell Dupree to the Christmas Carol Tea this past Tuesday where she shared the tale of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol as told by Scrooge's sister, since she was, after all, present for the spirited visits.
She told the story well, fully in character and not missing a beat! Her enthusiastic retelling held us all enthralled. Her graphic descriptions of the Spirits captured our imagination. Everyone left physically filled by the delicious tea prepared by Nancy Reppert and emotionally filled and in the Spirit of Christmas by Eliza's (and Charles Dickens') tale.
The evening concluded with a festive rendition of the song
"We Wish You a Merry Christmas".

What a great tea idea having Eliza visit and share stories of the Spirits. I would have loved being there.
