Would you be surprised to know that Charles Dickens virtually invented the Christmas holiday as we know it today? Before he wrote "A Christmas Carol" it was not unknown for workers in the USA and UK to work on Christmas Day. After his novel it became an acknowledged public holiday and employers even became more benevolent to the people who worked for them.
Dickens is acknowledged as one of the greatest writers of the 19th Century. He was also a public performer, reading his works out to much acclaim to audiences that often included Royalty. It is said that his performances were so powerful that grown men would sometimes faint during the more dramatic scenes.
His work is a powerful description of society at that time and his message about the threat of poverty and ignorance to civilisation is as true today as it was then.
Charles Dickens died in 1870.
