Description

Welcoming in the Christmas season by celebrating the way Charles Dickens did, with good fellowship, ghost stories . . . and punch! The conviviality of the Dickensian world is nowhere more apparent than in Dickens’ Christmas books and stories. From Mr. Pickwick celebrating at Dingley Dell to Scrooge offering Bob Cratchit a talk over a bowl of smoking bishop, Dickens knew that Christmas “was the season of hospitality, merriment, and open-heartedness.” Dickens himself always celebrated the holiday with parties, feasting, games and a brimming bowl of punch. 

Dickens also loved the tradition of telling ghost stories during the Yule season and his Christmas tales are brimful of spirits, from goblins to Marley and beyond.  We’ll bring some of his ghostly apparitions to life as we drink punch made from Dickens’ own recipe.
