We know Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim, and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future, not only as fictional characters, but also as icons of the true meaning of Christmas in a world still plagued with avarice and cynicism.

A Christmas Carol, probably the most popular piece of fiction that Charles Dickens ever wrote, was published in 1843

A Christmas Carol, probably the most popular piece of fiction that Charles Dickens ever wrote, was published in 1843. The book is as popular today as it was over 150 years ago. Charles Dickens, through the voice of Scrooge, continues to urge us to honour Christmas in our hearts and try to keep it all the year round. Technically speaking, A Christmas Carol was published by Chapman & Hall. However, in an interesting turn of events, Dickens paid the publishing costs himself. Dickens was adamant that A Christmas Carol be published as a high-quality, stand-alone book.

But what did Scrooge care! It was the very thing he liked.

remarkable in his taking a stroll at night, in an easterly wind, upon his own ramparts, than there would be in any other middle-aged gentleman rashly turning out after dark in a breezy spot-say Saint Paul’s Churchyard for instance-literally to astonish his son’s weak mind. Scrooge never painted out Old Marley’s name. But what did Scrooge care! It was the very thing he liked.

Christmas is humbug, Scrooge says – just a time when you find yourself a year older and not a penny richer. The only thing that matters to Scrooge is business, and making money. But on Christmas Eve three spirits come to visit him. They take him travelling on the wings of the night to see the shadows of Christmas past, present, and future – and Scrooge learns a lesson that he will never forget.

I’ve always thought of Christmas as a time to be helpful and kind to other people. It’s the only time of the year when men and women open their hearts freely to each other. And so, uncle, although I’ve never made any money from it, I think Christmas has been and will be a good time for me!

I’ve always thought of Christmas as a time to be helpful and kind to other people. And so, uncle, although I’ve never made any money from it, I think Christmas has been and will be a good time for me! And I say, God bless Christmas! Bob, in the cupboard, agreed loudly, without thinking. He immediately realized his mistake, and went quickly back to his work, but Scrooge had heard him.

We know Charles Dickens for works like "Great Expectations", "Tale of Two Cities", and Oliver Twists. We also remember him for his enduring Christmas work, "A Christmas Carol". What few remember about Charles Dickens was that Christmas was perhaps the most important season/holiday for him. For him, it was a time where people opened their hearts to peace and goodwill. This was a time where many of the huge troubles and burdens were put aside for the sake of family and friends. In his words, "I have always thought of Christmas time...as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time; the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut up hearts freely." In fact, in his 30s, Dickens began to write (and at times co-write with friends) various Christmas tales each holiday season. To him, this was an opportunity to help, in his own way, further the kindness and altruism that the season often brought. As he put it, he wanted to awaken some loving and forbearing thoughts, never out of season in a Christian land." And that's what this Fall River collection is all about.

This collection consists of 22 total Christmas works that he had written (3 of which were co-written) to the day he died. These stories are (more or less) short stories and tales. Some are a single chapter long while others are several chapters...but never terribly long. Still, even in the shortness of these works, they are very touching and profound looks at life and various aspects of it. This isn't some sugar-coated tales by no means. Dickens tackles so many facets of life. We know Scrooge and his obsession with business in it's darkest manifestation, we deal with Barbox Brothers who was betrayed by both his best friend and his fiance who ended up abandoning him so they could marry each other. We deal with satyric tales about the "Refreshmenting Service". And there's so much more. These aren't simply "feel good tales", but very serious ones...but they do leave you hopeful and thinking at the end. In the stories, you can really sense Dicken's love of the holiday...and especially the virtue and charity that the season is supposed to remind us of. It goes without saying that this is a wonderful collection that can really get you in the Christmas spirit. All in all, this is a beautiful collection that is relevant not only for Christmas, but for every other day of the year.
