A Christmas Carol (Cuento de Navidad)is a dramatic story by Emilia Pardo Bazán in which a mother faces Christmas with a seriously ill son.

Once upon a time there was a sickly child. His mother, a very opulent lady, was mad with the desire to give him health, and the doctor, looking at the nature of the child’s suffering, said that, mainly, it stemmed from a kind of atony or insensitivity, an effect of which his nervous system was as drowsy or asleep, and did not communicate to the organism the vital reactions and the spirit the necessary strength. That is to say, that Fernandito, as he called him, lived halfway, as if vegetating, which is enough for a plant, but insufficient for a man.
The mother tried to awaken by all means the sensitivity, imagination and psychic life of her son, without success. He walked him, guessed his tastes, brought him toys and sweets, and the boy took the toys for a moment and then dropped them, with indifference, at the foot of the armchair in which he sat languidly for months and months. The treats, I barely tasted them; With some, however, he became infatuated, and it was a double-edged sword, because it altered his stomach, and as exercise and movement did not contrast the effects of childhood gluttony, indigestion put his life in danger.
