Description

Gather the family around for a wonderful journey through time with this life-affirming tale, excellent for reading aloud on family gatherings!

Listen to this audio book with your family, or yourself alone, listening to this magical classic inspires the best of feelings, making it impossible to feel anything but happy, appreciative, and content.

Charles Dickens' wonderful story about the meaning of the Christmas Spirit is a story that we all know.

Ebenzer Scrooge is a bitter old man who "will keep Christmas in his own way".

People cringe when they see him coming. Dogs cower. But that is all about to change.

He is visited by the spirit of his deceased partner, Jacob Marley, dragging the chains he has forged for himself in life, and learns that it is not too late for him. He can redeem himself!

Scrooge is visited by three more spirits that Christmas eve. His past, his present and his future. Each take him on a fantastic journey, through time and space, showing him how his ways are wrong, and what will happen if he doesn't change.

Scrooge goes through small changes at first, is humbled by the spirits, and then he is transformed from a bitter man to a caring human being.

His new found appreciation of mankind is contagious. In the end we know that he changes not just so he can have a better after life, but because he really cares about life and humanity.

Perhaps most interesting is how much influence this single story has had on our entire modern conception of the Christmas holiday it's this one tale that in many ways created, idealized, and shaped the modern notion of Christmas, almost singlehandedly transforming Christmas from the celebration of a sacred holiday to the celebration of a family feast.

In the century or two prior to this, the holiday had primarily been seen as a twelve-day rural celebration by a whole village or manorial community a celebration that had largely fallen on hard times, due both to Cromwell's Puritan abolishment of Christmas celebrations during the 1640's and 50's and the increasing urbanization and industrialization of British life, which made such celebrations impractical or impossible.

This single story took what had been a dying tradition and revitalized it for the industrial era, refocusing it on the themes of charity, love, friendship, and the family the same ideas, essentially, that are commonly held at the heart of our Christmas holidays today and showing urban families a way to celebrate the holiday and make it meaningful.

In a very real way, this story saved Christmas.

Charles Dickens was the most popular English novelist of the Victorian era, and is still one of the most popular of all time.

He created some of literature's most iconic characters. The continuing popularity of his novels and short stories is such that they have never gone out of print.

His work has been praised for its mastery of prose, and for its teeming gallery of unique personalities.
