Christmas Carols Theme

Christmas carols are an essential part of the Christmas season, and children take great pride in learning the more familiar tunes and singing along. We've got all sorts of ideas here on a Christmas carols theme, including our own Christmas carols karaoke videos to singalong to - a great way to learn the words and tunes, and also good reading practice! We've also got colouring pages and other printables and also some information and activities for that Christmas classic, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.

A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens

"A Christmas Carol" is probably the most famous stories about Christmas ever written. It was written in 1843 (Dickens wrote the whole book in only 6 weeks!) and is about a man named Ebenezer Scrooge who is visited by four ghosts who teach him the error of his ways.

By the way, Charles Dickens is well known for making up some really good names for his characters, and Ebenezer Scrooge is a great example. Try saying the name a few times and see if you can guess what he was like! Can you make up your own names - the sort of names that help you to guess what the person might be like?

This is a photo of the original printing of "A Christmas Carol". The book has never been out of print since it was first published, and the story has been made into films and operas!
