The best way of describing the Macy's Dickens Village, is that it is like traveling back in time, for over a century and a half, to Victorian London. The British author Charles Dickens first published A Christmas Carol in 1843, and it remains the most popular Christmas book in the world.
It is - literally - a life-size rendition of A Christmas Carol. When you walk inside, you are transported back to 1840s London, with narrow alleys and plenty of tiny shops.
If you take your time and savor every moment, you'll get a feel for what it must have been like at Christmastime in London, circa the 1840s. You will walk past a highly elaborate series of vignettes, each depicting a scene from A Christmas Carol.
