Ebenezer Scrooge, a grouchy old curmudgeon, thinks Christmas is a frivolous holiday and an excuse for people not to work. Despite his vast fortune, Scrooge hoards his money, refusing to give to charity, believing that the poor are just lazy and deserve no such help. He doesn’t even pay his hardworking and loyal clerk, Bob Cratchit, a fair wage that would allow him to get his sick son, Tiny Tim, proper medical attention. On Christmas Eve, he is visited by the ghost of his former business partner, jacob Marley, who is now paying dearly for how he lived his life—the same way Scrooge is living his life now! Marley tells him that three spirits—the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come—will visit him that night. They will show Scrooge how he became so hard-hearted, what he’s lost out on, and what will happen if he keeps going down this path.
