Penned by Charles Dickens in an effort to communicate his protests against unkindness and sympathies with poor working class, the story of A Christmas Carol became a huge success. Not only did it receive several awards but had deep effects on the readers of the story and spectators of the theatre performances. Appropriate for all age groups, A Christmas Carol is indeed a must-watch play for the entire family. Reviving the traditional spirit of Christmas and instilling love and joy in the hearts of audiences, this piece of art is destined to be successful.

The Initiation

By 1843 Charles Dickens has already become a great name in the world of literature. Amidst his own routines Dickens found himself attuned to the miseries of the working poor in England. During this time he happened to visit the industrial area in Manchester. What he saw there, prompted him to write a story of a greedy businessman who would be reformed by the Christmas spirit. He named his protagonist Ebeneezer Scrooge and named his story "A Christmas Carol", which became so popular that several television series, films and plays were adapted from it.

Sneak Peek

The story begins on a cold, biting Christmas Eve which also explains the character of Scrooge, who is also a cold, wrenching and covetous old sinner. Scrooge hates Christmas, he does not like it and even refuses his nephew’s dinner invitation. His cruelty goes beyond this when he turns away two gentlemen seeking donation for a Christmas dinner for the poor people.

Later the same night Scrooge is visited by scary, horrifying, ghastly ghosts who show him the possible consequences of his unkindness and nastiness. Scrooge is shown scary, frightening future instances in hopes of transforming him into a good, kind person. The visits by ghosts actually work and Scrooge wakes up the next morning full of love and joy in his heart. He spends the next day with his nephew’s family and treats his fellow men with compassion and generosity.

The story although intended as a light hearted message for kindness and sympathy, thrilled the audiences and now the availability of A Christmas Carol tickets has allowed the chance to see the story live in action.

Few People know that…

When Charles Dickens was writing the story, he was so emotionally involved that he wept and laughed and wept again as he went about writing the story. He would take long walks at night anywhere between fifteen to twenty miles. The story is also loosely connected to Dickens’ first published novel character Gabriel Grubb, a gravedigger adamant on not liking Christmas at all and was kidnapped by goblins and convinced to change his ways.

Historian Thomas Carlyle went to get a turkey right after he read Dicken’s account of Scrooge’s salvation. An American entrepreneur gave an extra holiday to his employees. And the novelist William Thackeray stated ‘A Christmas Carol’ to be a national benefit despite his history of not being much of an admirer of Charles Dickens. The story itself and now the adaptations into films and movies have truly proved smashing hits and are making their way into the hearts of all the Scrooges out there.
