He does not like the poor and the needy, and he hates Christmas as much as he hates laughter and kindness. All of this changes on Christmas Eve when he gets a rude awakening to just how sad and lonely his life really is. This timeless story was an immediate success for Charles Dickens when it was first published in 1843. Dickens's message about the importance of thinking of others is something for everyone to think about.
