Perhaps at this point my enthusiasm for Charles Dickens’ novel A Christmas Carol is growing old, so I promise this will be my last reference to this book (for this year, at least)! To me, A Christmas Carol is a must read around the holidays – and quite an easy and entertaining one at that! Check out this link which allows you to read this short novel online! Also, take a moment to look at the following fun facts about Dickens’ famous story:
- A Christmas Carol was Charles Dickens most popular work.
- He wrote it in six weeks in order to rush to get it published before Christmas.
- The main character in the novel, Ebenezer Scrooge, is actually based off of someone Dickens knew in real life: Ebenezer Scroggie.
- Within the first year of its publication, A Christmas Carol had already been made into 10 theatre productions!
