This caroller represents the main character of Scrooge in the Christmas Carol story.
If I could work my will, every idiot who goes about with Merry Christmas on his lips, should be boiled in his own pudding and buried with a stake of holly through his heart!. - Ebeneze Scrooge
Joyce approached the Dickens line as a challenge and an opportunity. She remembers: We first introduced Scrooge in 1983, thinking that Bob, Mrs. Cratchit and Tiny Tim would join Scrooge in succeeding years as they each had a lesson to teach. My earliest characters had even more exaggerated faces then those of today, perhaps because I, like Dickens, look for the story behind each person. Many more of the characters in this line are available as well.
