CHRISTMAS

DID YOU KNOW?

Charles Dickens began writing A Christmas Carol in October 1843 and completed it 6 weeks later, in December of that same year.

Few families in Victorian England owned an oven. Like the Cratchits, they would bring their goose or turkey to the local baker who would cook it for a small fee.

Bob Cratchit would have paid 7 shillings for the goose, 5 for the pudding and 3 for the onions, oranges, and sage. ( In the 1800s, a shilling was worth about 40 cents. ) Today, the cost of these items would be about $58.
