A Christmas Carol is a novella by English author Charles Dickens. Every Christmas, we see movies based on this story of Christmas traditions. Published in December of 1843, A Christmas Carol focused on the plight of the poor and children in Victorian England. Ebenezer Scrooge, the protagonist, enjoys a tortured Christmas and becomes a changed man. Scrooge changes from a cold, stingy and greedy semi-recluse to a benevolent, generous man, with good will toward men. Dickens was making a statement about his observations of the lives of the men, women, and children in the most impoverished areas of London, and witnessed the social injustices they suffered.
