The Dickens Museum in London got into the festive spirit Wednesday, unveiling its "A Christmas Carol" exhibition centred on the novelist's famous tale of Scrooge and the ghosts of Christmas.It is also a story about child labor, at a time when poverty-induced misery had reached record levels – and had pushed Dickens to put pen to paper, according to the museum's director, Cindy Sughrue.Dickens, who himself was forced to stop attending school and work as a child while his father was imprisoned for debts, consistently took up in his books the cause of the weakest.Cherishing the spirit of sharing and simple pleasures like a fire-side family meal, the story was an immediate success.
