A Christmas Carol|


Outside the Curran Theater| on Christmas Eve

Yesterday after just watching a spectacular performance of A Christmas Carol| at a beautifully preserved ornate art deco theater| in San Francisco|, Sam Graumann’s| gift to the world, my family and I started the very cold walk up a hill back to our car.  We were discussing how amazing the performance was and what we liked about it.  I was mostly listening.  I thought I saw this as a chance to use this as a teaching lesson (the kind that your oldest child says, “Oh, MOM!)

My oldest child said — “Mom, did you see that!!” My youngest child said everything with his astonished yet beautiful smile.

Up ahead of us A Woman approaching two homeless men| standing on the street on this very cold (for San Francisco) day took off her sweater and handed it to one of the men saying, “Merry Christmas|.”  The astonished man replied, “Thank you.  This is a real Christmas present.”  The woman now walking away, looked back and said to him, “Merry Christmas|!”

We had all just witnessed the true meaning of Christmas, love and giving in the form of a random act of kindness.

I think Charles Dickens would have liked it!
