In 1843, Charles Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol, a ghost story that helped give life to a particular vision of Christmas that is still popular today. Many of the images and themes described by Dickens have become inextricably linked with the Christmas holiday. Although A Christmas Carol was by far his most popular and influential holiday story, he published several.
