“A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens” – Classic Book of Xmas Gift for Young and Old

by WriterArtist

It is told that the best ever gifts you can gift to a child are the books that imbibe moral values in them. A Christmas Carol is such a book imbibing the Christmas spirit.

A Christmas Carol is the classic that has remained a universal Christmas story which has a practical teaching and learning for everyone irrespective of age.

The sky looks beautiful, like the icing on a cake, and as the snow falls, it decks us up for the finest time in the year. There is joy in each heart and a spring in every step, carols in everyone’s ears, and Christmas cheer in the air.

As the spirit of Christmas comes alive, and kindness and benevolence overflows in each of our hearts, I remember the story by Charles Dickens – ‘A Christmas Carol’.
One of my favourite selection of gifts for senior citizens and youngsters are Christmas Books that contain a learning message. Those books that convey a message are my favourites.

It was a time when the penury stricken, talented author Charles Dickens needed money to survive and support his family. This beautiful creation and masterpiece of the writer continues to delight its readers all around the world. It is bought in dozens for public reading, libraries and gifts. It revokes the action of benevolence and imbibes the thoughts of brotherhood and good will.

Best Gift of Children’s Christmas Books

Best gift of children’s Christmas books are stories that leave a fine imprint on the mind with a strong character full of compassion and benevolence. A child needs this values while growing up, he or she needs to know that he will always have options but he/she should make the right decision of choosing the right decisions.


Beautiful stories always carry a message, a teaching, they are full of life and they resemble reality. They obviously do not weave an imaginary world or a fantasy that is far from truth. Fairies and angels are obviously present, so are the demons. The paradise and hell is very much there and you can encounter them in the very world you live and inherit.

Your opinion of Charles Dickens book "A Christmas Carol"?

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

“It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas 
Ev'rywhere you go; 
Take a look in the five and ten glistening once again 
With candy canes and silver lanes aglow….”

  It’s that time of the year again, Christmas! - the holiday that everyone looks forward to the most, children and adults alike.

This story is never old and never boring. There is something in the story meant for all of us. If the three ghosts visited us, what would each of us learn?

Every incident that happens in our lives has an effect on us - be it good, or bad. But we let these incidents govern our lives. Each childhood experience molds us. But many times an unpleasant experience is capable of transforming us. We never quite let go of them, and the pain always remains. We stop being happy and joyful, and practice the habit of becoming sadder just like a depressed person.

How to Imbibe the Message of Christmas Carol?

Why not make this Christmas one where we let go of our past and live in the present?

It is now or never.  Christmas is a time for us to be happy, kind, loving and caring. But let us take this beyond Christmas. Let every day in our lives be full of joy and happiness.

Let’s make this Christmas a time to let go of our past and open our hearts for the present and the future. Begin every day as if it was your first and last.

The present is in “Happiness” and sharing it with others! Make good use of present.

LOL. You didn't have to to do that. But since you did, I colored in the dot that said "All of the Above". :)

@AbbyFitz - One of my favourites too, it has the right message and the way it is conveyed in the story is beautiful.

@Mira - Most of the time, I search for a good video that contains my story or has something pertaining to the story I want to depict. Glad I got a match and you liked it.

@ologsinquito - You said it - the greed is the defilement that kills humanity.

WriterArtist, "A Christmas Carol" is a Christmas tradition for many. The Victorian illustrations are always enchanting and amplify the attraction of this favorite tale by the compassionate storyteller, Charles Dickens.
Arthur Hughes is one of my favorite pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood artists, so I'm happy to see that you included his painting amongst your selections. Thank you!

You can't celebrate the Christmas holiday without including "A Christmas Carol" in some form - cartoon, book, movie, etc. Couldn't take the poll because I consider the Dicken's work all 3: a classic read, a Christmas story, and a moral story.

AbbyFitz on 12/07/2013

This my absolute favorite story. I never get tired of watching the movie. My favor tips with Patrick Stewart

Mira on 12/07/2013

Thank you for including a video as well. It's quite nice! I have started it now and plan on watching the whole thing tomorrow.
