A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

You are surely familiar with and have read the book or have seen the play, movie, or the TV version of A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens.

The picture today is an illustration from the original book and depicts Marley's Ghost.

You may or may not have seen that picture before but you surely know about Marley's ghost.

And the phrase that you likely most remember from "A Christmas Carol" is, yes, you guessed it --  "Bah Humbug".

With those thoughts in mind, you might think that Charles Dickens didn't care much about or for Christmas.

Well, think again, because, an interesting article was sent to us by a friend of DIT and it sheds new light on the author's thoughts about Christmas --

and it is not 'Bah Humbug" at all.

I think you will find it verrrrrry interesting.
