This Christmas Eve, fresh off watching a version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ (the Muppets version for nostalgia’s sake) I’ve pondered what continuing the story of Tiny Tim Cratchit would look like. After all, as Charles Dickens exclaimed, ‘Tiny Tim, who did not die!’
During his time, sickness was rampant in England and across the world. Our medical developments of a vaccine just were not there. I ask myself, how would Tiny Tim Cratchit stay upbeat as he battled his illnesses and saw sickness in others as he grew up?
