Charles Dickens in Boston

The Marblehead Museum will host historian Susan Wilson on Thursday, December 8 at 7pm, for a lecture on how Charles Dickens brought Christmas back to Boston. Ms. Wilson, the official historian of the Omni Parker House Hotel, will trace the history of Christmas celebrations, which were discouraged and banned in colonial Boston. Wilson will explain how Christmas finally began to be embraced in the mid-19th century, and how Charles Dickens’ arrival in 1867 — when he stayed at the Parker House for 5 months and became Boston’s biggest celebrity — really added fuel to the yule log. Dickens’ visit culminated in the first public reading of A Christmas Carol in America, at Boston’s Tremont Temple. This lecture is generously sponsored by Nan Dumas, and can be viewed via Zoom.
