  • A Christmas Carol


    A Christmas Carol is the story of Ebenezer Scrooge, a miserly old man whose greed has left him isolated and disliked. On Christmas Eve the embittered Scrooge is visited first by the ghost of his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley, and then by three spirits symbolizing the past, present, and future of Christmas. These spirits help Scrooge to gain important insights into his personality and eventual fate, making the story a parable about the importance of generosity and love.
