C is for Christmas Carol


 I had to leave a little note in the stocking this morning to tell the children that I had gone in search of the clue and they would have to wait until after work and school to find out the next part of our advent mystery challenge.


I bought a copy of The Muppets Christmas Carol which I hid in amongst our DVDs before giving the children a stocking filled with corn (they had no trouble with the popcorn association) and the clue above. They squealed with delight when they discovered this Christmas classic movie (it was on Josie's Christmas list) and made notes throughout the film about possible clues.




Could it be Ebenezer Scrooge in that cold dark room? Is he the lonely figure? What have the spirits got to do with the mystery and how can Bob Cratchit help? The plot thickens .......


I would love it if you could leave a comment. Please give it a go, I'm working on making it easier
