Christmas Past: Did Charles Dickens Really “Invent” Christmas?

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without the influence of Charles Dickens and his most famous work: A Christmas Carol. Some have even gone as far as saying he basically “invented” Christmas as we know it today. So…did he? In this episode, I get answers from the man himself!

Music in this Episode:

  • Traditional tune played by band at Dickens Fair
  • Snowfall: Shady Dave
  • Wish Background: Kevin MacCleod
