me and all my pupils have started reading the story and, as we find it particularly suitable to express the true meanig of Christmas, we will post some extracts in order to make all together some personal considerations and reflections.

The author described Christmas Carol as his “little Christmas Book”, a story which was instantly successful, selling over six thousand copies in one week and the tale has become one of the most popular and enduring Christmas stories of all time.
