Apart from the Bible story of the Nativity itself, there is probably no better-known tale of Christmas in the English language than Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. Its appeal is manifest; A Christmas Carol is a mix of fantasy and realism that captivates us on many levels. As a children’s story, it is crammed with sensory delights and food for the imagination. For grownups, a sober warning is cloaked in the jolly trappings of Christmastide. Dickens wraps up the scriptural promise of redemption like a box of bonbons, making it universally and inescapably infectious.
