SPOTSWOOD, NJ - At the conclusion of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol," Scrooge discovers the true meaning of the holiday. He finally opens his hardened heart to the joys of giving.

“I will honour Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach!” Scrooge says at the conclusion of the Dickens' novella that has never been out of print since its initial publication in December of 1843.

On Saturday, December 11 at 7 p.m. at Appleby School, the Spotswood Chapel will be embracing the spirit of the popular Christmas classic with an original adaptation of Dickens' timeless literary creation .
