When Charles Dickens was writing A Christmas Carol, history tells us that the great author wrote "like a madman" - frequently sobbing, laughing, wandering in a daze through London's streets. He was so in love with his story that he finished it in six short weeks, and it was published just in time for Christmas. During the holiday season, London was swept up in the spirit of "God bless us everyone"; employers gave their workers an extra day off, families spent more time around the table, people were kinder to strangers. The world was as changed by Dickens' passionate writing as the author himself.
This year, we wish you good tidings, along with all the passion and joy of A Christmas Carol.
