Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserly and mean-spirited old man. He treats
family, coworkers, and strangers alike with distaste. But on Christmas
Eve he receives a visit from the ghost of his dead business
partner, Jacob Marley. Marley warns Scrooge that unless he learns
to be less greedy and self-serving that Scrooge will be condemned
to wander Earth weighed down with heavy chains, as Marley has
been. Marley tells Scrooge that three spirits will visit him. First,
the Ghost of Christmas Past visits and shows Scrooge his own
Christmases past, including the Christmas when his fiance left
him for being obsessed with money. Second, the Ghost of Christmas
Present shows Scrooge all the happiness occurring at the various
Christmas festivities around the city. Finally, The Ghost of Christmas
Yet to Come shows Scrooge what will happen after his own death,
and Scrooge is horrified to find that everyone will celebrate
it. Distraught, Scrooge begs for another chance, and suddenly
wakes in his own bed. Forever after he honours the spirit of Christmas
with kindness, generosity and warmth.
