Paul Cornell - The Ghosts of ChristmasIf you feel like reading something during the Holiday Season to intersperse the relentless celebrating, eating, drinking, and opening of presents with some culture then I have a suggestion for you...

You might consider The Ghosts of Christmas, a short story with a rather Dickensian title by Paul Cornell, which has been made available on Tor. com for all our enjoyment, with an illustration by Scott Bakal.

Although I'm sure that you can also read this after Christmas, it just won't be as topical/timely anymore, I guess...

Either way - enjoy the story, enjoy your Christmas (or you days off should you not celebrate), and thanks for reading along!
