Originally published in the 1850 Christmas edition of Dickens' journal Household Words, "A Christmas Tree" is considered to be one of Dickens' more autobiographical pieces. In it, decorations on the Christmas tree trigger the narrator's memories of Christmases past. This version of "A Christmas Tree" was recorded as part of Dreamscape's The Christmas Stories of Charles Dickens.

Pleasant entry in the Dickens canon
There are definitely echoes of "A Christmas Carol" found in this essay. Overall it is a nice remembrance of Dickens, and his generation, of the Christmas tree's role in the holiday. Michael Page is one of my favorite narrators. His clear, crisp voice makes what could have been a slightly above average story far better.
