A Camelot for Sufferers of Chronic Pain

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens – Movie Part 7 Part 8 Part 9

 A   Christmas  Carol

The Medieval Christmas traditions combined the celebration of the birth of Christ with the ancient Roman festival of Saturnalia, a pagan celebration for the Roman god of agriculture, and the Germanic winter festival of Yule.    At the time of the Industrial Revolution allowed workers little time for the celebration of Christmas.   

However the Christmas stories of Charles Dickens, particularly his 1843 masterpiece,   A Christmas Carol, rekindled the joy of Christmas in Britain and in America. 

Dicken’s description of the holiday  included a  “kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time.”  Charles Dicken’s name became associated with Christmas and “A Christmas Carol” (published in 1843 )  became his best loved and most read of all his books.  We do loveth this story.
