|Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol (1984) Feature|
"The sight of these poor revellers appeared to interest the|
Spirit very much, for he stood with Scrooge beside him in a
baker's doorway, and taking off the covers as their bearers
passed, sprinkled incense on their dinners from his torch.
And it was a very uncommon kind of torch, for once or twice
when there were angry words between some dinner-carriers who
had jostled each other, he shed a few drops of water on them
from it, and their good humour was restored directly. For
they said, it was a shame to quarrel upon Christmas Day.
And so it was. God love it, so it was."
