The "Christmas Story" (often a "Christmas Ghost Story") was a popular Victorian tradition. Charles Dickens, who surely needs no introduction today, took part with gusto, penning dozens of Christmas tales (the most famous being "A Christmas Carol"). We are delighted to include not just the standard fare of "A Christmas Carol," but a total of 25 great stories (more than 1,000 pages!) Dickens penned for Yuletide reading in this volume. Included are: A CHRISTMAS CAROL THE CHIMES THE CRICKET ON THE HEARTH THE BATTLE OF LIFE THE HAUNTED MAN AND THE GHOST'S BARGAIN A CHRISTMAS TREE NOBODY'S STORY THE SCHOOLBOY'S STORY THE CHILD'S STORY THE POOR RELATION'S STORY THE SEVEN POOR TRAVELLERS THE HOLLY-TREE—THREE BRANCHES THE WRECK OF THE GOLDEN MARY THE TRIAL FOR MURDER GOING INTO SOCIETY SOMEBODY'S LUGGAGE MRS.
