Charles Dickens is loved by generations of readers. You'll find some of his characters walking around at "The Great Dickens Christmas Fair," an annual Bay Area event where thousands of devotees lovingly reenact the sights and sounds of a Victorian Christmas, including everything from hot mulled wine to historically-accurate hoop skirts.
