From bustling city streets adorned with twinkling lights to cozy firesides filled with laughter and joy, Dickens transports readers to a bygone era where the holiday season was truly a magical time of year.

The characters in these stories are also incredibly well-developed and relatable, each facing their own challenges and struggles that they must overcome.

Book Description:
Twenty stories originally published in the Christmas editions of the magazines “Household Words” and “All The Year Round”. Some of the stories have little holiday sentiment and exhibit much of the indignation Dickens felt at the social and economic injustices of his day. Some of the stories were written in collaboration with other authors. The editor of this volume chose to omit those other chapters and include only Dickens' work. The result is that some of the stories are a bit choppy, not to say confusing.
