Visit Charles Dickens’ London and have the best Christmas ever

Share this:


It started in October 1843 when Charles Dickens wrote one of his most famous and best-loved books, A Christmas Carol.







Today many think of Dickens as the creator of our modern Christmas spirit.









Coca-Cola gave us the red-coated Santa and Prince Albert introduced the Christmas tree.

But we need to thank Charles Dickens for the modern Christmas spirit. Dickens inspires the festival activities like no one else.








Even our perception of the perfect Christmas being white one comes from Dickens. In his classic A Christmas Carol there are references to snow because his childhood in the 1810s included several snowy winters in a short period.
