The ghost of the past reader closes the circle this Christmas under the banner of Dickens.

A Christmas Carol is in fact one of the characters of Desy Icardi‘s Christmas e-book. 

For this reading I have to thank Luciana who pointed out the link to Fazi Editore

Desy Icardi as well as a writer is a stand-up comedian and blogger: together with Grace Dis, Sara Ronco and Federica Salassa she created Pataridens  a blog dedicated to funny stories on female issues.

I immediately fell in love with the lawyer Ferro who I discover is also the protagonist of Desy’s other novels.

The idea was precisely to take the characters created by Desy and make them move within a Christmas story.

Good idea! Don’t you agree?



The X-mas Carols is a fantastic initiative that I am happy to be a part of.

This time the famous red thread links me first of all to Shio which is the creator and organizer, and then to many others blog one more interesting than the other.

As you will have seen, the Christmas countdown that I have entered on the side today marks 23 days, but starting from 8 December you will find a real Advent Calendar.

I report the exact description with which Shio illustrates her idea on the blog The World of Shio Ren:
As you can obviously imagine, I was inspired by the famous “Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens for the name and, in this special case, the “carols” are represented by the work of all those who have trusted me and joined me me in this project.
The Xmas carols, is a sort of virtual advent calendar where, every day, a blogger will host another’s carol on his blog: many small carols created through writing, drawing and poetry which, united, will give life to a symbolic Christmas choir sung by all the participants for all of you who follow us year after year with great affection.

Anyone who has known me for the longest time knows how fond I am of the Advent Calendars, indeed, I would take the opportunity to make my annual appeal pass here too: feel free to share the photos of your calendars and indulge yourself.

This one by Shio is really special because it represents the union of everyone’s Art.

In my case, art is too big a word, but the enthusiasm is authentic and sincere.

As for “A Christmas Carol,” how many times have you read or seen it? What’s your favorite version?

“It is a fair, even-handed, noble adjustment of things, that while there is infection in disease and sorrow, there is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good-humour” wrote Charles Dickens in A Christmas Carol.

Let’s get infected as Dickens teaches us then
