Among his many accomplishments, Charles Dickens was also the author who initiated the tradition of writing ghost stories for Christmas. The magic of the seasonal tales he created for the readers of Household Words and All The Year Round has remained undiminished through the years and are now brought together in one volume.

The best ghost stories for Christmas have a few details in common, even if they don’t take place during the holidays. They possess such a convivial sense that you feel a part of the crowd, gathering close to the fire to hear a scary story that just may be real. Such ghost stories remind listeners that they’re inside someplace warm, while hinting at the limitless dark that presses in from outside.

Possibly the most famous story about telling stories in all of English .

Possibly the most famous story about telling stories in all of English literature begins on Lake Geneva, Switzerland, in June 1816. One of the most familiar examples of the Christmas ghost story is Charles Dickens's A Christmas Carol, which he wrote in 1843 as a way of cashing in on the renewed demand for the form. The novel amounts to an acknowledgement of the ghost story's seasonal ubiquity. That sets the mood and liberates the spirits which accompany us through the following months as the days get colder, and Jack Frost stretches his fingers across the window pane.
