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!
