Description

In October 1843, Charles Dickens, who was heavily in debt and obligated to his publisher, began writing a book to help supplement his family's income. That book, known as A Christmas Carol, has become one of the most beloved stories in English. It is now a part of the holiday season, much like holly, mistletoe, and evergreen wreaths. This classic tale continues to captivate new readers and remind us of the importance of kindness and generosity.



The characters in the story exhibit many qualities, both good and bad, which are often attributed to Dickens himself. The imaginative and entertaining tale follows Ebenezer Scrooge's chilling encounters with a series of ghostly visitors. As he travels with them through past, present, and future Christmases, Scrooge is transformed from a stubborn, insensitive miser into a warmhearted, generous, and caring person. Written by one of England's greatest and most popular novelists, A Christmas Carol has become a symbol of the true meaning of Christmas.
