Marley tells Scrooge that he has a single chance to avoid the same fate: he will be visited by three spirits and must listen or be cursed to carry much heavier chains of his own.
The first spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Past , takes Scrooge to Christmas scenes of Scrooge's boyhood, reminding him of a time when he was more innocent.
The scenes reveal Scrooge's lonely childhood at boarding school , his relationship with his beloved sister Fan, and a Christmas party hosted by his first employer, Mr Fezziwig , who treated him like a son.
Finally, they visit a now-married Belle with her large, happy family on the Christmas Eve that Marley died.
Scrooge, upset by hearing Belle's description of the man that he has become, demands that the ghost remove him from the house.
The second spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Present , takes Scrooge to a joyous market with people buying the makings of Christmas dinner and to celebrations of Christmas in a miner's cottage and in a lighthouse.
Scrooge and the ghost also visit Fred's Christmas party. A major part of this stave is taken up with Bob Cratchit's family feast and introduces his youngest son, Tiny Tim , a happy boy who is seriously ill.
The spirit informs Scrooge that Tiny Tim will die unless the course of events changes. Before disappearing, the spirit shows Scrooge two hideous, emaciated children named Ignorance and Want.
He tells Scrooge to beware the former above all and mocks Scrooge's concern for their welfare. The silent ghost reveals scenes involving the death of a disliked man whose funeral is attended by local businessmen only on condition that lunch is provided.
His charwoman , laundress and the local undertaker steal his possessions to sell to a fence. When he asks the spirit to show a single person who feels emotion over his death, he is only given the pleasure of a poor couple who rejoice that his death gives them more time to put their finances in order.
When Scrooge asks to see tenderness connected with any death, the ghost shows him Bob Cratchit and his family mourning the death of Tiny Tim.
The ghost then allows Scrooge to see a neglected grave, with a tombstone bearing Scrooge's name. Sobbing, Scrooge pledges to change his ways.
Scrooge awakens on Christmas morning a changed man. He makes a large donation to the charity he rejected the previous day, anonymously sends a large turkey to the Cratchit home for Christmas dinner and spends the afternoon with Fred's family.
The following day he gives Cratchit an increase in pay, and begins to become a father figure to Tiny Tim. From then on Scrooge treats everyone with kindness, generosity and compassion, embodying the spirit of Christmas.
The writer Charles Dickens was born to a middle-class family which got into financial difficulties as a result of the spendthrift nature of his father John.
In John was committed to the Marshalsea , a debtors' prison in Southwark , London. Dickens, aged 12, was forced to pawn his collection of books, leave school and work at a dirty and rat-infested shoe-blacking factory.
The change in circumstances gave him what his biographer, Michael Slater, describes as a "deep personal and social outrage", which heavily influenced his writing and outlook.
By the end of Dickens was a well-established author, having written six major works, [n 1] as well as several short stories, novellas and other pieces.
Celebrating the Christmas season had been growing in popularity through the Victorian era. Their practice was copied in many homes across the country.
Dickens had an interest in Christmas, and his first story on the subject was "Christmas Festivities", published in Bell's Weekly Messenger in ; the story was then published as "A Christmas Dinner" in Sketches by Boz In the episode, a Mr Wardle relates the tale of Gabriel Grub, a lonely and mean-spirited sexton , who undergoes a Christmas conversion after being visited by goblins who show him the past and future.
Dickens was not the first author to celebrate the Christmas season in literature. Several works may have had an influence on the writing of A Christmas Carol , including two Douglas Jerrold essays: one from an issue of Punch , "How Mr.
Dickens was touched by the lot of poor children in the middle decades of the 19th century. It was a parliamentary report exposing the effects of the Industrial Revolution upon working class children.
Horrified by what he read, Dickens planned to publish an inexpensive political pamphlet tentatively titled, An Appeal to the People of England, on behalf of the Poor Man's Child , but changed his mind, deferring the pamphlet's production until the end of the year.
In a fundraising speech on 5 October at the Manchester Athenaeum , Dickens urged workers and employers to join together to combat ignorance with educational reform,  and realised in the days following that the most effective way to reach the broadest segment of the population with his social concerns about poverty and injustice was to write a deeply felt Christmas narrative rather than polemical pamphlets and essays.
By mid Dickens began to suffer from financial problems. Sales of Martin Chuzzlewit were falling off, and his wife, Catherine , was pregnant with their fifth child.
George Cruikshank , the illustrator who had earlier worked with Dickens on Sketches by Boz and Oliver Twist , introduced him to the caricaturist John Leech.
By 24 October Dickens invited Leech to work on A Christmas Carol , and four hand-coloured etchings and four black-and-white wood engravings by the artist accompanied the text.
The central character of A Christmas Carol is Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly London-based businessman,  described in the story as "a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner!
This psychological conflict may be responsible for the two radically different Scrooges in the tale—one a cold, stingy and greedy semi-recluse, the other a benevolent, sociable man.
Elwell, Scrooge's views on the poor are a reflection of those of the demographer and political economist Thomas Malthus ,  while the miser's questions "Are there no prisons?
And the Union workhouses? The treadmill and the Poor Law are in full vigour, then? There are literary precursors for Scrooge in Dickens's own works.
Peter Ackroyd , Dickens's biographer, sees similarities between the character and the elder Martin Chuzzlewit character, although the miser is "a more fantastic image" than the Chuzzlewit patriarch; Ackroyd observes that Chuzzlewit's transformation to a charitable figure is a parallel to that of the miser.
The grave was for Ebenezer Lennox Scroggie, whose job was given as a meal man—a corn merchant; Dickens misread the inscription as "mean man".
When Dickens was young he lived near a tradesman's premises with the sign "Goodge and Marney", which may have provided the name for Scrooge's former business partner.
The transformation of Scrooge is central to the story. Other writers, including Kelly, consider that Dickens put forward a "secular vision of this sacred holiday".
Jordan argues that A Christmas Carol shows what Dickens referred to in a letter to his friend John Forster as his " Carol philosophy, cheerful views, sharp anatomisation of humbug, jolly good temper Dickens wrote A Christmas Carol in response to British social attitudes towards poverty, particularly child poverty, and wished to use the novella as a means to put forward his arguments against it.
As the result of the disagreements with Chapman and Hall over the commercial failures of Martin Chuzzlewit ,  Dickens arranged to pay for the publishing himself, in exchange for a percentage of the profits.
The first printing contained drab olive endpapers that Dickens felt were unacceptable, and the publisher Chapman and Hall quickly replaced them with yellow endpapers, but, once replaced, those clashed with the title page, which was then redone.
Chapman and Hall issued second and third editions before the new year, and the book continued to sell well into According to Douglas-Fairhurst, contemporary reviews of A Christmas Carol "were almost uniformly kind".
The last two people I heard speak of it were women; neither knew the other, or the author, and both said, by way of criticism, 'God bless him!
The poet Thomas Hood , in his own journal , wrote that "If Christmas, with its ancient and hospitable customs, its social and charitable observances, were ever in danger of decay, this is the book that would give them a new lease.
There were critics of the book. The New Monthly Magazine praised the story, but thought the book's physical excesses—the gilt edges and expensive binding—kept the price high, making it unavailable to the poor.
The review recommended that the tale should be printed on cheap paper and priced accordingly. Following criticism of the US in American Notes and Martin Chuzzlewit , American readers were less enthusiastic at first, but by the end of the American Civil War , copies of the book were in wide circulation.
In January Parley's Illuminated Library published an unauthorised version of the story in a condensed form which they sold for twopence.
I have not the least doubt that if these Vagabonds can be stopped they must. Let us be the sledge-hammer in this, or I shall be beset by hundreds of the same crew when I come out with a long story.
Two days after the release of the Parley version, Dickens sued on the basis of copyright infringement and won. Dickens returned to the tale several times during his life to amend the phrasing and punctuation.
He capitalised on the success of the book by publishing other Christmas stories: The Chimes , The Cricket on the Hearth , The Battle of Life and The Haunted Man and the Ghost's Bargain ; these were secular conversion tales which acknowledged the progressive societal changes of the previous year, and highlighted those social problems which still needed to be addressed.
While the public eagerly bought the later books, the reviewers were highly critical of the stories. By Dickens was engaged with David Copperfield and had neither the time nor the inclination to produce another Christmas book.
In the years following the book's publication, responses to the tale were published by W. The novella was adapted for the stage almost immediately.
Three productions opened on 5 February , one by Edward Stirling being sanctioned by Dickens and running for more than 40 nights. Davis considers the adaptations have become better remembered than the original.
Some of Dickens's scenes—such as visiting the miners and lighthouse keepers—have been forgotten by many, while other events often added—such as Scrooge visiting the Cratchits on Christmas Day—are now thought by many to be part of the original story.
Accordingly, Davis distinguishes between the original text and the "remembered version". The most common musical setting was adapted from an English melody in by Arthur Sullivan.
Believed to have first been published in the early nineteenth century, this carol paints a vivd picture of the nativity.
The carol was set to music a year later by organist H. J Gauntlett. This carol is a mixture of both German and Latin text, and dates back to the Middle Ages.
The words, dreamed up by English writer Isaac Watts, are based on the second half of Psalm 98 in the Bible.
You can just feel the merriness pouring out of it. One of the oldest Christmas carols on the list, this dates back to at least the 16th century, possibly earlier.
This late 19th-century carol is hugely popular with children. The melody was originally composed in by Jonathan E.
Spilman, but was later adapted in by William J Kirkpatrick. A carol which celebrates the piping of a shepherd boy on his way to see the baby Jesus at Bethlehem, this represents everything festive about John Rutter.
The Oxford Book of Carols , first published in by Oxford University Press OUP , was a notably successful collection; edited by the British composers Martin Shaw and Ralph Vaughan Williams , along with clergyman and author Percy Dearmer , it became a widely used source of carols in among choirs and church congregations in Britain and remains in print today.
The singing of carols was further popularised in the 20th century when OUP published one of the most popular carol books in the English-speaking world, Carols for Choirs.
First published in and edited by David Willcocks and Reginald Jacques , this bestselling series has since expanded to a five-volume set.
Along with editor John Rutter , the compilers included many arrangements of carols derived from sources such as Piae Cantiones , as well as pieces by modern composers such as William Walton , Benjamin Britten , Richard Rodney Bennett , William Mathias and John Rutter.
Today carols are regularly sung at Christian religious services. Some compositions have words that are clearly not of a religious theme, but are often still referred to as "carols".
For example, the 16th-century song "A Bone, God Wot! Little research has been conducted on carol singing, but one of the few sociological studies of caroling in the early 21st century in Finland determined that the sources of songs are often misunderstood, and that it is simplistic to suggest caroling is mostly related to Christian beliefs, for it also reinforces preservation of diverse national customs and local family traditions.
A modern form of the practice of caroling can be seen in " Dial-A-Carol ," an annual tradition held by students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign , wherein potential audiences call the singers to request a performance over phone call.
It is not clear whether the word carol derives from the French "carole" or the Latin "carula" meaning a circular dance.
In any case the dancing seems to have been abandoned quite early. Traditionally, carols have often been based on medieval chord patterns, and it is this that gives them their uniquely characteristic musical sound.
Some carols like " Personent hodie ", " Good King Wenceslas ", and " The Holly and the Ivy " can be traced directly back to the Middle Ages , and are among the oldest musical compositions still regularly sung.
Compositions continue to be written that become popular carols. For example, many of the carols written by Alfred Burt are sung regularly in both sacred and secular settings, and are among the better known modern Christmas carols.
Almost all the well-known carols were not sung in church until the second half of the 19th century. Isaac Watts , the "father of English hymnody", composed " Joy to the World ", which has become a popular Christmas carol even though it is widely believed that Watts did not write it to be sung only at Christmas.
Charles Wesley wrote texts for at least three Christmas carols, of which the best known was originally entitled "Hark! How All the Welkin Rings", later edited to " Hark!
Cummings to fit Wesley's words. This combination first appeared in "Hymns Ancient and Modern" in The carol was first performed in the Nikolaus-Kirche Church of St.
Nicholas in Oberndorf , Austria on 24 December Mohr had composed the words much earlier, in , but on Christmas Eve brought them to Gruber and asked him to compose a melody and guitar accompaniment for the church service.
Several different Christmas episodes, apart from the birth of Jesus itself, are described in Christmas carols, such as:.
In addition, some carols describe Christmas-related events of a religious nature, but not directly related to the birth of Jesus.
For example:. Antiquarians in the 19th-century rediscovered early carols in museums. Some are wassailing songs, some are religious songs in English, some are in Latin, and some are " macaronic " — a mixture of English and Latin.
Since most people did not understand Latin, the implication is that these songs were composed for church choristers, or perhaps for an educated audience at the Royal courts.
The most famous survival of these early macaronic carols is "The Boar's Head". The tradition of singing carols outside of church services early in the 19th century is best illustrated by Thomas Hardy 's novel " Under the Greenwood Tree " Money collected in this way is now normally given to charity.
Singing carols in church was instituted on Christmas Eve in Truro Cathedral , Cornwall, see article on Nine Lessons and Carols , and now seen in churches all over the world.
Shortly before, in , the Salvation Army , under Charles Fry, instituted the idea of playing carols at Christmas, using a brass band.
Carols can be sung by individual singers, but are also often sung by larger groups, including professionally trained choirs. Most churches have special services at which carols are sung, generally combined with readings from scripture about the birth of Christ; this is often based on the famous Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols at King's College, Cambridge.
In the s and s, two French composers incorporated carols into their works. Louis-Claude Daquin wrote 12 noels for organ.
Peter Cornelius included carol melodies in the accompanyment of his song cycle Weihnachtslieder Op. Other examples include:. In Austria, Belgium and Germany, Christmas is celebrated by some with children dressing as "The Three Kings", carrying a star on a pole.
Going from house to house from New Year's Day to 6 January, the children sing religious songs and are called "star singers".
They are often rewarded with sweets or money, which is typically given to a local church or charity. B" is written in chalk on houses they have visited.
Although this is sometimes taken as a reference to the three kings — Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar — it may originally have represented the words Christus mansionem benedicat Christ bless this house.
In Australia, South Africa and New Zealand, where it is the middle of summer at Christmas, there is a tradition of Carols by Candlelight concerts held outdoors at night in cities and towns across the country, during the weeks leading up to Christmas.
First held in Melbourne, "Carols by Candlelight" is held each Christmas Eve in capital cities and many smaller cities and towns around Australia.
Performers at the concerts include opera singers, musical theatre performers and popular music singers.
People in the audience hold lit candles and join in singing some of the carols in accompaniment with the celebrities.
Similar events are now held all over Australia, usually arranged by churches, municipal councils, or other community groups.
They are normally held on Christmas Eve or the Sunday or weekend before Christmas. A similar recent trend in South Africa and New Zealand are for smaller towns to host their own Carols by Candlelight concerts.
These referred to the hot dry December of the Australian outback, dancing brolgas a native Australian crane , and similar Australian features.
Some carols familiar in English are translations of German Christmas songs Weihnachtslieder. Pastoral Weihnachtslieder are sometimes called Hirtenlieder "shepherd songs".
Martin Luther wrote the carol " Vom Himmel hoch, da komm ich her ", which can be acted as a play of the Christmas history.
He also wrote " Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ " and " Christum wir sollen loben schon ". The carol " Vom Himmel hoch, o Engel, kommt " was written by Friedrich Spee in to an older melody, a lullaby singing "of Jesus and Mary", and for peace.
The carol most familiar in German is probably the 19th-century " O du fröhliche ". Ingeborg Weber-Kellermann wrote a scientific book on German Christmas carols which is also a song book.
There are separate carols for each of the three great feasts, referring respectively to the Nativity , to St. In addition to the carols for the winter festive season , there are also the springtime or Lenten carols, commonly called the "Carols of Lazarus ", sung on the Saturday before Palm Sunday as a harbinger of the Resurrection of Christ to be celebrated a week later.
In older times, caroling children asked for and were given edible gifts such as dried fruit, eggs, nuts or sweets; during the 20th century this was gradually replaced with money gifts — ranging from small change in the case of strangers to considerable amounts in the case of close relatives.
Caroling is also done by marching bands, choirs, school students seeking to raise funds for trips or charity, members of folk societies, or merely by groups of well-wishers.
Many internationally known carols, e. Many carols are regional, being popular in specific regions but unknown in others, whereas some are popular throughout the two countries.
Most carols follow a more or less standard format: they begin by exalting the relevant religious feast, then proceed to offer praises for the lord and lady of the house, their children, the household and its personnel, and usually conclude with a polite request for a treat, and a promise to come back next year for more well-wishing.
Almost all the various carols are in the common dekapentasyllabos syllable iamb with a caesura after the 8th syllable verse, which means that their wording and tunes are easily interchangeable.
This has given rise to a great number of local variants, parts of which often overlap or resemble one another in verse, tune, or both.
Nevertheless, their musical variety remains very wide overall: for example carols from Epirus are strictly pentatonic , in the kind of drone polyphony practised in the Balkans , and accompanied by C- clarinets and fiddles ; just across the straits, on Corfu Island, the style is tempered harmonic polyphony, accompanied by mandolins and guitars.
Generally speaking, the musical style of each carol closely follows the secular music tradition of each region.
Christmas carols in predominantly Catholic Philippines exhibit the influence of indigenous, Hispanic and American musical traditions, reflecting the country's complex history.
Christmas carols are very popular in Poland, where they have a long history, the oldest dating to the 15th century or earlier.
The villancico or vilancete in Portuguese was a common poetic and musical form of the Iberian Peninsula and Latin America popular from the late 15th to 18th centuries.
With the decline in popularity of the villancicos in the 20th century, the term became reduced to mean merely "Christmas carol".
Their written versions starts in the 15th century. In the past were usually being song by shepherds and their families in market squares and in front of churches.
The Nadala origins are uncertain but usually cited to be related with the Montseny and Pedraforca mountains in Catalonia by the counties of Osona and Girona.
As quite a few have references to mythological events and powers, some authors claim that they contain part of the religion that was present in the territory before Christianity arrived as it was kept alive in these mountainous regions.
The nadala is usually paired with the caramella , being one for the winter solstice events while the other to the spring equinox.
