“A Christmas Carol” was published in 1843 as a novella and it rapidly became a holiday favorite, entertaining tens of thousands across the world.
Today, it is arguably the most adapted non-Biblical Christmas story. Ebenezer Scrooge is the surviving partner of Scrooge & Marley, a business that values profit above all else. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is his usual miserly self, chastising his sole employee, Bob Cratchit, for wanting to take off Christmas Day and insulting his nephew Fred for celebrating a holiday that has “never put a penny in anyone’s pocket.”
But that night, Scrooge is visited by three spirits who show him his desolate path and give him the opportunity to gain his redemption.
This timeless story continues to touch hearts, no matter how often it has been seen, and regardless of the millions of adaptations it has undergone.
