It took Charles Dickens only six weeks to write "A Christmas Carol," which was first published Dec. 19, 1843.
And it took about the same amount of time before the first stage adaptation of the novella was presented.
Since then, "A Christmas Carol" has never been out of print, and adaptations of the tale of Ebenezer Scrooge and his ghostly visitors one bleak Christmas Eve are everywhere.
