Parson’s Nose’s annual celebration of the English language when we revel in Dickens’ own words, the delicious description of Victorian London we skimmed in high school but now can enjoy over a cup of wine or cocoa…
“Scrooge lived in a gloomy suite of rooms, in a lowering pile of a building up a yard where it had so little business to be that one could scarcely help fancying it must have run there when it was a young house, playing at hide-and-seek with other houses and had forgotten the way out again.”
“In came a Fiddler and went up to the desk and made an orchestra of it and tuned like fifty stomach-aches. In came Mr. Fezziwig, one vast, substantial Smile. In came the three Miss Fezziwigs, beaming and lovable. In came the six young Followers, whose hearts they broke. In came all the Young Men and Women employed in the business. In came the Housemaid, with her cousin, the Baker. In came the Cook, with her brother’s particular friend, the Milkman. In came “The Boy from over the Way’. In they all came; some shyly, some boldly, some gracefully, some awkwardly. Away they all went, twenty couple at once.”
