And you thought you knew Christmas Carol

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, “cratch” means “cradle or manger.”

“Timothy” means “honoring God.”

So Tiny Tim Cratchet’s name means “little one from the manger who honors God.”

Interesting what you find when you actually have five minutes of doing nothing.
