One might read the paragraph relating to the observance of the holiday half a hundred times and not become weary.

From the beginning, when the hero, his three friends and his faithful servant start for Dingley Dell, to the hour of their return there is Christmas in every sentence: As brisk as bees, if not altogether as light as fairies, did the four Pickwickians assemble on the morning of the 22d day of December in the year of grace in which these their faithfully recorded ad ventures were undertaken and accom plished. Christmas was close at hand in all his bluff and hearty honesty. It was the season of hospitality, merriment and open heartedness. The old year was pre paring, like an ancient philosopher, to ...
