A Christmas Carol, By Charles Dickens

cover of a christmas carol

A classic Christmas tale which has been adapted for both film and television on numerous occasions and remains a staple Christmas story.

Written in 1843 the story tells of a bitter old miser Ebenezer Scrooge who shuns the Christmas season while all around him, including his improvised employee Mr Cratchett are spreading Christmas cheer.

However that night Mr Scrooge has a supernatural visit by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley  who warns him to change his ways but Scrooge’s reply “Bah Humbug! “Leads to the visit of the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come with surprising results.

A timeless classic and one of Dickens’ easier stories to read, full of the Christmas spirit.
