A Christmas Carol

“A Christmas Carol” is a novel by Charles Dickens and was first published in London in 1843.

It tells the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, an elderly miser (Geizhals) who is visited by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley on Christmas Eve. Marley’s ghost wanders the earth, heavily burdened with chains and boxes of money, forged during his lifetime of greed and selfishness. He announces Scrooge the visit of the spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to Come, and that he must listen to them to avoid the same fate as his.

The spirits of Christmas visit Scrooge and take him to the past, present and future events of his life, to show him the bad person he has become.

When Scrooge wakes up on Christmas Day he is transformed into a kinder and gentler man. From then on he treats everyone with kindness, generosity and compassion, embodying the spirit of Christmas.

Published on 19 December 1843, the first edition sold out by Christmas Eve. By the end of 1844, thirteen further editions had been released. "A Christmas Carol" has never been out of print, has been adapted many times for film, stage and other media and is still one of the most popular Christmas stories.
