Don't forget perennial favorites like A Christmas Carol. As a matter of fact, there are several versions of Charles Dicken's beloved story of ghosts and happy endings. Several radio serials performed their own version of the story.Imagine A Blondie Christmas Carol or A Richard Diamond Christmas Carol.Those must be interesting!
