Charles Dickens 200th birthday

via Google
Today marks the 200th anniversary of the birth of Charles Dickens.

I doubt anyone reading this blog needs to be told who Dickens was, but it might interest you to know he's a distant relation of ours. His book A Christmas Carol has had a profound impact on how we celebrate Christmas as a family, as it has for many others.

Happy birthday, Uncle Chuck!

  1. Oh, my! Thank you for this! The Google image was so teeny-tiny on my screen that I noticed none of the detail and blew right past it. Shame on me.
