Dear Editor,You really have to feel sorry for poor Ebenezer. His name is synonymous with miserly greed and cold hearted meanness. But does anyone remember how his story ends? In the book, it says, “He became as good a friend, as good a master, and as good a man, as the good old city knew. He knew how to keep Christmas well, if any man alive possessed that knowledge.”In his final days, Ebenezer was loved by all who knew him. He kept Christmas in his heart every day of the year. And he saved Tiny Tim’s life and family. And yet, what was his reward? To have his name trashed for all eternity? To have his name used to depict the ultimate in cruelty and stinginess?Let’s give this guy a break! Christmas is nearly upon us and once again, we’ll all get misty eyed as we see George Bailey running down the streets of Bedford Falls, yelling out Christmas cheer to everyone ... even to Mr. Potter. We’ll all reach for the tissue box as Bob Cratchit speaks softly of how much he misses his Tiny Tim, and we all rejoice as the movie ends with Tiny Tim running to meet “Uncle Ebenezer” in the street. Even that old crooner Crosby, singing out White Christmas, can melt the coldest of hearts.
