A Christmas Carol in Prose, Being a Ghost Story of Christmas
(commonly known as A Christmas Carol) is a novella by Charles
Dickens first published on December 19, 1843 with illustrations by
John Leech. The first of the author's five "Christmas books", the
story was an instant success, selling over six thousand copies in one week, and
the tale has become one of the most popular and enduring Christmas stories of
Contemporaries noted that the story's popularity played a critical role in
redefining the importance of Christmas and the major sentiments associated with
the holiday. A Christmas Carol was written during a time of decline in
the old Christmas traditions. "If Christmas, with its ancient and hospitable
customs, its social and charitable observances, were in danger of decay, this is
the book that would give them a new lease", said English poet Thomas Hood.
