A Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol

by Charles Dickens

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this story?

G

Yeah, sorry, guys, this thing is almost totally squeaky clean. The only even very mildly suggestive scene happens during the party at Fred's house, when one of his friends is "it" during a game of blind-man's bluff.

Even though he appears to be blindfolded, he keeps going for Fred's sister-in-law and keeps, ahem, accidentally grabbing her around the waist or by the hand. After the game ends, the two go off to a dark corner of the room and hang out by themselves behind a curtain. Wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
