    Another great discussion! I just wanted to weigh in on the whole tangent about wider Xmas culture in the US:

    I’m wondering if the alleged emphasis on ‘It’s a Wonderful Life’ is a generational thing? I’m 24 and live in the US, and personally I’ve barely ever heard anyone my age talk about that movie (if anything, the movie my generation keeps going on about is Elf). On the other hand, just to back up Tansy here, A Christmas Carol has been adapted so many times in so many different versions (Muppets, Mickey Mouse, Looney Tunes, Smurfs, Rob Zemeckis etc) that it’s become pretty ubiquitous in American culture, to the point that I don’t even think you have to be an Anglophile to at least recognize the basic beats of the story, or phrases like ‘bah, humbug’.
