There is so much behind a name, especially a name “Invented Chrismas” that immediately makes you wonder about the Nativity vs some kind of marketing malevolent consumerism propagating entity, present in most conspiracy theories.

Build Series says: “”The Man Who Invented Christmas,” tells the magical journey that led to the creation of Ebenezer Scrooge, Tiny Tim and other classic characters from “A Christmas Carol.” Directed by Bharat Nalluri, the film shows how Charles Dickens (Dan Stevens) mixed real-life inspirations with his vivid imagination to conjure up unforgettable characters and a timeless tale, forever changing the holiday season into the celebration we know today.” Now contrast that to Rotten Tomatoes: “Critics Consensus: The Man Who Invented Christmas adds holiday magic to the writing of A Christmas Carol, putting a sweetly revisionist spin on the story behind a classic yuletide tale.” -
