Humbug Day

Posted by Brittany

Hmmm…it looks like I’m all out of humbugs even though I only used six of my twelve. That’s okay though — I used my remaining cheer to celebrate the ultimate Humbug by watching Disney’s 2009 animated re-telling of A Christmas Carol. I still feel like I’ll never get used to this type of computer animation. It wasn’t like Pixar animation, but something more akin to video game graphics. Still, as painful as it was to watch at times, I did feel that certain aspects of the adaptation were inspired. I particularly liked the ethereal interpretation of The Ghost of Christmas Past. And, bad graphics or not, the story is a Christmas classic. There’s no humbug about it…?

Tomorrow we’ll explore our artistic side — perhaps with some Christmas themed poetry — in honor of National Haiku Day!
