One of the most compelling tales ever written, A Christmas Carol is a phenomenon. First published in 1843, Charles Dickens’ novella is now inextricably linked to Christmas. It is profound, archetypal, and it touches desires deep within us all for second chances and the opportunity to redeem past mistakes.
No other story captures the spirit of Christmas as powerfully as this one, it provides the catharsis of great tragedy without the horror and gloom of a tragic ending. Find out how Dickens came to write A Christmas Carol, what his sources of inspiration were, how it helped shape the way we celebrate Christmas, and the amazing impact of the novella about Scrooge and the three ghosts.
