Happy Holidays from The Shadow Over Portland!

Happy Holidays to all Northwest Horror Fans!  Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Yule, or a holiday I haven't mentioned, may your celebration be festive and the New Year be kind to you all.

In the spirit of sharing, here's my favorite version of Charles Dicken's A Christmas Carol.  Yes, the short animated tale is Christmas-centric, but Dicken's commentary on humanity's ability to be uncaring towards others, regardless of the time of the year, isn't glossed over in this adaptation.  And it remains a ghost story with some pretty creepy images, which is rather surprising as the executive producer is Chuck Jones, better known for his Looney Tunes work.  Also, it features the voice of Alastair Sim as Scrooge!

Enjoy with your family and friends, if you like.  And once again, Happy Holidays from The Shadow Over Portland!
