On December 19, 1843 Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol” is first published. This first edition would sell out by Christmas Eve. Dickens eventually took to doing public readings of his story, which were so popular he continued performances until his death in 1870. It is often considered a perfect capture of the revival of Christmas experienced in the middle of the Victorian era.
