Charles Dickens (1812-1870), at this time of year, is best known for his book A Christmas Carol. His other Christmas story, “A Christmas Tree”, first appeared in the weekly magazine, In Household Words, founded and edited by Dickens himself. This short story is considered an autobiographical piece portraying his lifelong fascination with Christmas and his fondness for his idyllic childhood Christmas memories.
The story told by an elderly Dickens reminisces of holidays past, beginning with the gifts and toys that surround and decorate the Christmas tree. Each ornament recalls a memory as he moves up the tree branch by branch. The story moves to a few ghost stories related to the various childhood haunts visited during holidays before ending back on a reflective note around the Christmas Tree.
To celebrate Christmas, Faded Page offers a number of Christmas short stories including Dylan Thomas’s “A Child’s Christmas in Wales”, Lucy Maud Montgomery’s “A Christmas of Long Ago”, John Felter’s “Happy Hearts” and Margery Allingham’s “Word in Season. A Story for Christmas”. Come join us and proof a few pages to help us bring more public domain titles to Canada. More information about volunteering is available on our companion site Distributed Proofreaders Canada.
