Oh how our local paper likes to be grumpy.

One shop's decision to put up its own Christmas window display rather than pay a local firm to erect Christmas trees on their behalf has been branded as "mean" and failing add to "the Dickensian magic conjoured up in the historic market town".

I feel an urge to point out to the paper that the "Dickensian magic" presumably refers to "A Christmas Carol", and ask what that novel would be without Scrooge.
