That, of course, is far too simple, but there is no doubt that this giant among Victorian writers spotted his fellow countrymens need for an annual national celebration and exploited it in spectacular fashion. Christmas was rarely acknowledged in print before A Christmas Carol was published in 1843, but the combination of the books popularity and Victorias accession to the throne a few years earlier changed for ever the public attitude to the festive season. Prince Albert famously introduced the Christmas tree and the Christmas card was invented in England in 1841.
