A Christmas Carol

Of the time I lived in London, a year and a half was spent living and working four streets from the Charles Dickens Museum in Holborn. The building was Dickens’ house in the 1830s. I remember walking the streets with a friend late one Friday night (well, actually it was early Saturday morning – the sun started to rise as we walked!) just so I could show her the building. (We did some rather strange things while living in London!)

Because of my Christmases spent in Dickens’ corner of the world, I feel a little bit attached to A Christmas Carol, which was first published by Chapman & Hall on the seventeenth of December, 1843. That’s today, if you missed the date!

This illustration shows Ebenezer Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Present.
