A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

Hi everybody!! The students from 3rd Course of Compulsory Secondary Education are reading one of the best books this term. It is hard to believe that there is anyone on the planet who is not familiar with the story of A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. What is it about?

Ebenezer Scrooge isn't celebrating Christmas Eve, he thinks that Christmas is "a waste of time and money". On Christmas Eve, four ghosts teach Scrooge, an elderly miser, that love and friendship are much more important than amassing a fortune. The first ghost is that of Marley, his former business partner, who warns him about the suffering awaiting him if he does not change. The three other ghosts reveal to Scrooge scenes from his past, present and future. After witnessing these scenes, Scrooge is a changed man.

Christmas is just around the corner and I´m sure you will enjoy this story. We must highlight the true Christmas time value such as friendship, love, honesty... all of them are the crux of the matter for our society. Next day, we´ll continue reading chapter 2.

Charles Dickens is the author of this breathtaking novel: he was an English novelist, considered the greatest of the Victorian period.
