With her husband, Ebenezer, now ´doornail dead´, the coldest Christmas Eve on record finds Mrs Scrooge outside the supermarket, protesting against consumerism and waste. ´Spoilsport!´ shout the passersby as they load up their shopping carts with Christmas goodies. Just as Ebenezer did, Mrs Scrooge keeps to her frugal ways...but with the current state of the world, perhaps Mrs Scrooge has the right idea. That night, alone in her bed with Catchit the cat beside her, Mrs Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. As each in succession takes her by the hand and sweeps through the scenes of her life, Mrs Scrooge learns not only what the ´Christmas Spirit´ really means, but the nature of the real gifts we give and receive. 1.

Bigotry is an ugly and evil thing. What is even more insidious is when you start to hate the people of your own race. Kathy wanted to be white. She learned to talk white and walk white and even had herself a handsome white husband. The only thing wrong with her life was that she had been born black. While on a shopping trip in New England, Kathy comes across an old curio shop, which sells her a ´´special´´ mirror. With this mirror she can see what she wishes to see. With sleight of hand, the subtle bending of light, and the realization of truth, Kathy and her husband, Robert, learn the frightful lesson of...the mirror. 1. Language: English.
