Interestingly ‘A Christmas Carol’ the famous Scrooge story penned by Charles dickens was believed to be inspired by Dicken’s stay in the Yorkshire town of Malton. Back in the early 19th century a building in Chancery Lane, Malton housed the Smithson families, law practice. As part of his training Charles Smithson spent his time in London and met and formed a relationship with Charles Dickens. Dickens spent a lot of time with the Smithson family in Malton. and it is believed that he modelled Scrooges counting house on the Chancery Lane premises. ‘Bah, Humbug’ Ebenezer Scrooge ‘Unless we make Christmas an occasion to share our blessings, all the snow in Alaska won’t make it white’. Bing Crosby
