A Christmas Carol – Charles Dickens
A Christmas Carol is one of the most classic holiday stories. It tells the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and his rediscovery of Christmas. Written by Charles Dickens in 1844, it came out at a time when British people were re-examining their long-held Christmas traditions. This story single-handedly paved the way for a brand-new approach to celebrating Christmas.
A Christmas Carol has never been out of print since it was first published in 1844. It has been adapted into countless plays, musicals, ballets, audiobooks, and films. The story of Scrooge, Marley, and the three Ghosts of Christmas remains as timely today as it was when it was first written. It deals with themes like poverty, charity, and family in a way that both adults and children can understand.
