Synopsis

The first edition of Dicken’s classic work A Christmas Carol, was published in 1843. It was a runaway success, and Dickens went on to write dozens of follow up Christmas tales over the next 25 years. Many of these stories are bundled in collections, titled Christmas Stories  or  Christmas Books. The first four Christmas books published after the success of A Christmas Carol were: The Chimes: A Goblin Story of Some Bells that Rang an Old Year Out and a New Year In (1844), The Cricket on the Hearth: A Fairy Tale of Home (1845), T he Battle of Life: A Love Story  (1846), The Haunted Man and the Ghost’s Bargain: A Fancy for Christmas-Time  (1848).  After the success of these stand-alone books, Dickens began to write and edit special Christmas-themed issues of Household Words, a twopenny journal he launched in 1850. He collaborated with well-known authors, as well as wrote his own stories. You can find multiple bound editions of these early stories from Household Words , such as "What Christmas Is" (1851), "The Poor Relation's Story "(1852), "The Schoolboy's Story" (1853), "The Seven Poor Travellers" (1854), "The Holly-Tree Inn" (1855), "A House to Let" (1858), "The Haunted House" (1859), "A Message from the Sea" (1860), and "Somebody's Luggage" (1862).
