Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol under financial duress, but it became one of his most popular and enduring stories.

Historians believe that A Christmas Carol contributed greatly to the modern sentimental Christmas.

SummaryAdd a Summary
This is a great story to remind the reader of the dangers associated with greed. Also, the idea of family is strongly promoted in "A Christmas Carol." If Scrooge had married Isabelle, what would have happened? The sad thing is Scrooge never was able to rewind the clock and answer that question; however, Dickens was very clever and did this intentionally. He desired the audience to ask this question concerning their own life. This points to a very important concept. The decisions made on a daily basis will have consequences, so it is important to make good decisions. Unfortunately, Scrooge's priorities were messed up and he had to reap the consequences. However, like Scrooge it is never too late to make a change, and what better time than Christmas? What a hopeful, encouraging Christmas tale!
