Christmas Stories 2016 v2 --> A Christmas Carol

Tis that time of year to compile a collection of free Christmas stories. Vol 1 will include all Christmas stories except "A Christmas Carol". Due to the sheer volume of that perennial classic, it'll be the subject of vol 2. Both posts will be linked in the OP.

Master Index
A Christmas Carol -- Charles Dickens (1812~1870)

Quote:
A Christmas Carol is a novella by Charles Dickens. It was first published in London by Chapman & Hall on 19 December 1843. The novella met with instant success and critical acclaim. Carol tells the story of a bitter old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge and his transformation into a gentler, kindlier man after visitations by the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmases Past, Present and Yet to Come.

The book was written at a time when the British were examining and exploring Christmas traditions from the past as well as new customs such as Christmas cards and Christmas trees. Carol singing took a new lease on life during this time. Dickens' sources for the tale appear to be many and varied, but are, principally, the humiliating experiences of his childhood, his sympathy for the poor, and various Christmas stories and fairy tales.
