I love the holiday season. The festive music, aromatic smells, decadent foods, and twinkling lights create a heartwarming ambiance that lifts the spirit. We deck our homes with our favorite decorations, we indulge in our favorite recipes and we enjoy watching our favorite holiday flicks. One of my family’s best-loved movies is A Christmas Carol. It’s about Ebenezer Scrooge, a selfish, mean-spirited miserable man who hates pretty much everything including Christmas. He’s rude and doesn’t believe in giving to charity or being kind-hearted. Then on Christmas Eve, he gets woken from his sleep by his deceased partner Jacob Marley who offers a warning. Then Scrooge gets a visit from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future.
The insight and awareness these ghosts brought to Scrooge burst open his heart and third eye and completely changed his personality and view of life. Having this kind of insight would be beneficial to anyone. That is where A Christmas Tarot can be of assistance to those who love the tarot.
A Christmas Tarot is an enchanting deck that was inspired by Dicken’s holiday classic, A Christmas Carol. What’s unique about this deck is that it has 22 Major Arcana cards only and they are numbered from 0 – 21. As the Major Arcana cards represent significant and substantial turning points, they are fitting for an end-of-a-year spread. The deck also comes with a pretty guidebook that features each of the 22 Major Arcana in color. They share the keyword along with readings for the past, present and future. Plus, each card shares a special Christmas Angel Message at the very end. The deck and guidebook are nestled together in a quaint and whimsical Victorian-style box that has dark green ribbon hinges and a lift tab.
The 22 cards have the same holiday image on the backs, but the fronts of each one have a unique message and ghostly artwork. Now you can channel and revisit the ghosts of Christmas past, get divine guidance from angels about our current situation and help to interpret our future endeavors. Each card has a name and offers one keyword for reflection and insight as you journey into the next year. It’s a beautiful deck and would make an ideal gift for beginner or experienced tarot card readers.
