Why Would Charles Dickens Write a Ghost Story for Christmas?

We've seen so many re-tellings of A Christmas Carol

that we don't even think about it as a ghost story

And what about this line in the song “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” by Andy Williams:


There'll be scary ghost stories

and tales of the glories

of Christmases long, long ago

It was already a long-standing tradition to tell ghost stories at Christmas,

but it was especially popular during the Victorian Era

after Dickens published his "little Christmas Ghost story"


Christmas is about the birth of the Savior


A ghost is the spirit or soul of a person who has died


Ghost stories are a reminder that we continue to exist after death, and that what we do in this life affects where we go when we die. 

I'll show you how Dickens emphasizes that, along with

references to:

The Bible

Good Friday

Images of Christ


in this

"Little Christmas Ghost Story"

This famous Christmas Story by Charles Dickens

isn't just about giving money to the poor

It's about the Salvation of Ebeneezer Scrooge

It's also a Christmas Ghost Story

In this course, I'll walk you through the entire story

You'll discover the references to:

The Bible

Good Friday

Images of Christ




You'll see how this wonderful story

is a deeply and intentionally

Christian story
