A Klingon Christmas Carol

Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol has been performed in the Klingon language for a few years by a troupe in Minneapolis. Pretty cool, but I think that it should also be translated culturally, as well as linguistically. Perhaps with Scrooge as a hero urging warriors to remember the true spirit of The Day of Honor.

It has been translated culturally. I encourage you to look into the company's website http://www.cbtheatre.org for more info on how the whole thing works. Scrooge has no honor, is a coward and a cheat. The ghosts come to cure him of that... to make him a true warrior in time for the Year Games which are part of the Feast of the Long Night.
