A Christmas Carol is a wonderful novel by English author Charles Dickens first published by Chapman & Hall on December 17, 1843. The story tells of sour and stingy Ebenezer Scrooge's ideological, ethical, and emotional transformation after the supernatural visits of Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. The novella met with instant success and critical acclaim.

The book was written and published in early Victorian era Britain when it was experiencing a nostalgic interest in its forgotten Christmas traditions, and at the time when new customs such as the Christmas tree and greeting cards were being introduced. 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.

A Christmas Carol remains popular, has never been out of print, and has been adapted to film, opera, and other media.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Christmas represents love and holiday cheer, shared with family and friends. Christmas or Christmas Day is a holiday generally observed on December 25 (with alternative days of January 6, 7 and 19) to commemorate the birth of Jesus, the central figure of Christianity. The exact birthday of Jesus is not known, and historians place his year of birth some time between 7 BC and 2 BC. Narratives of his birth are included in two of the Canonical gospels in the New Testament of the Bible.

Although nominally a Christian holiday, Christmas is celebrated by an increasing number of non-Christians worldwide, and many of its popular celebratory customs have pre-Christian or secular themes and origins. Popular modern customs of the holiday include gift-giving, music, an exchange of Christmas cards, church celebrations, a special meal, and the display of various decorations; including Christmas trees, lights, garlands, mistletoe, nativity scenes, and holly. In addition, several figures, known as Saint Nicholas, Father Christmas, and Santa Claus, among other names, are associated with bringing gifts to children during the Christmas season.

Not as many pictures as I expected, but otherwise a nice version. Random Christmas clip-art at the end was funny.

I'm only a kid but to my point of view it is a pretty good book but it coukd be better. I think reading this book teaches kids and adults life lessons about how to treat others the way you want to be treated and that if you think your better than everyone else your not and you'll find that out later in life or in death. And for all of you out there that read this book and your snotty this book should teach you a good life lesson. If you are wanting to read this book and your just reading the comments to see how it is in my opinion everybody should read this book.
