Charles Dickens was one of 19th century England’s greatest and most popular novelists, and even in our own time he remains universally regarded as ‘The Man who Invented Christmas’. To many, his literary characters are as real today as the day they were written, especially Ebenezer Scrooge, Jacob Marley, Bob Cratchit, and Tiny Tim. Dickens’ own life was a true tale of rags-to-riches – from the shame and squalor of debt and humiliation in Victorian London to international literary success, wealth, and worldwide acclaim. His reality is reflected in the lives of his famous literary creations. This holiday season, let’s sit by the ‘fireside bright’ as Dr. Covington becomes the ‘Master of Holiday Mirth’ himself.
