Reader's Diary #2261 - Charles Dickens: A Christmas Tree

Charles Dicken's short story "A Christmas Tree" begins pleasantly enough; a man is describing the many decorations on a Christmas tree. They eventually cause him to go on tangents of imagination and of memories, which again, nothing wrong with this per se. However, it soon becomes clear that there's never going to be more of a plot than this and it starts to become boring, very, very boring.
