A Christmas Carol and Other Holiday Treasures
Most famous in the realm of holiday literature for his 1843 publication, "A Christmas Carol," Charles Dickens was in fact a prolific writer in the yuletide genre and a great contributor to many now-prevalent traditions of the holiday itself. In 1844, Dickens released "The Chimes: A Christmas Story of Some Bells That Rang an Old Year Out and a New Year In," which combined his usual sympathy for the poor with the notion that we must always strive to live in nobler ways. In 1845 came the novella "The Cricket on the Hearth." The years 1846 and 1848 respectively saw published "The Battle of Life" and "The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain." Because of this wealth of Christmas-themed works, Dickens is sometime referred to as "the man who invented Christmas."
