A Christmas Carol: (Scrooge)

Updated on May 19, 2013

A Christmas Carol

"A Christmas Carol." was a book written by Charles Dickens. The book later turned into a movie, which starred Alastair Sim as Ebenezer Scrooge. The movie was made in 1951 with Scrooge as the main character, along with The Cratchits and others. Scrooge was old, cold-hearted, and hated Christmas and all that it stood for. He loved to exclaim, Bah, Humbug! He was very reluctant to give his clerk, Bob Cratchit the day off for Christmas, so that Mr. Cratchit could spend the holiday with his family. Scrooge was miserly, embittered, lacked great sympathy for others, and he was so disgusted by all of the poor people in the world. His partner in business, Jacob Marley is his partner in business, but is deceased at the beginning of the movie, and Marley is the first spirit to visit Scrooge, before the other three spirits; to warn Mr. Scrooge to change his wicked ways, before its too late, or else he would end up just like Mr. Marley did, with dragging chains, and wandering the earth alone, forever and ever.

The Three Spirits of Christmas

Mr. Scrooge was to be visited by the three spirits of the Christmas past, present, and the Christmas yet to come, which had dire warnings for Scrooge if he didn't change his wicked ways. The Ghost of Christmas Past took Scrooge back in time to show him things, people, and events that made him the way he was. The Ghost of Christmas Present showed him the way things were in the present, and The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come showed him the future events of what would happen if he (Scrooge) didn't change his wicked ways. Mr. Scrooge learned that Tiny Tim would die, and he saw his own grave. Finally, Mr. Scrooge repented and begged for forgiveness. He would change! Mr. Scrooge became as kind and generous as a man could be. He was very happy and rejoiced; he loved Christmas ever since.

The book and the movie touched the hearts and souls of everyone in England and the United States. Good will toward all of mankind was important and never to be forgotten. The book and movie showed how Victorian society enjoyed and celebrated the Christmas holiday; along with plum pudding and good food.

Scrooge's Repentence

Scrooge repented and became a new man after the visits of the three spirits. He became very kind and generous to all. Scrooge changed from being a bitter, cold-hearted old man to a warm, kind, and generous spirit. The story that Charles Dickens wrote in 1843, has endured through the countless years, and is still true even today. The true meaning of Christmas is about love, kindness, and generosity. Scrooge was a completely changed man as was witnessed by his housekeeper, who thought that he had gone completely mad. He saw the little boy in the street and gave him two shillings to go and fetch a goose that was hanging in a market. A man was paid to deliver the goose to Bob Cratchet's home, which he did.
