Some years ago I was in London. I was doing a Teacher Refresher Course and I visited some houses which had been inhabited by important English Writers and Poets. This was part of my CPD as a teacher doing the course.
It was a great experience for me since I could visit the places where some of them had written their works.
I visited Charles Dickens Museum and my adventure into visiting this kind of museums would never stop.
Christmas is associated to Dickens.
Dickens was associated to London and the Victorian Age. His works are well-known and most children have read his famous books and stories about Christmas:
This December some people might go to the cinema and see the last film about Christmas and Dickens but I think that this document provided by the British Library can help us understand the man and his time:
I think the film may be interesting and worth seeing but reading the book which he wrote to celebrate Christmas is much more involving.
You can find some nice editions online and read something which can make you see the beauty of the old Christmas when Dickens wrote his stories.
For younger children you can find a nice cartoon in English:
Merry Christmas !!
