A Goblin Story of Some Bells That Rang an Old Year Out and a New Year In. Although it’s about the Christmas season, it’s specifically about New Year’s.
The Chimes centers on the visions of Trotty Veck, an old man who ekes out a meager living by picking up delivery jobs at his local church, whose bells have an almost spiritual hold on him. On New Year’s Eve, he is particularly discouraged during encounters with the local gentry, whose unfeeling criticisms of the poor echo the writings of callous Victorian social theorists.
