Ebenezer Scrooge, known to all for being generally unpleasant—even towards his own family—has no regard for Christmas or its many traditions. He’d rather spend Christmas Day working than to fall behind on his business. And god forbid he let his employees have the day off!
On Christmas Eve, however, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of Marley, his former business partner. Because of Scrooge’s indifference to his fellow man, Marley warns him of the consequences that await him in the afterlife. In addition, Marley suggests that the three other ghosts that will visit him that night will give him the chance to redeem himself.What follows remains one of the most timeless and beloved tales of heartbreak, sorrow, and redemption. A Christmas Carol is a heartfelt reminder to remember the good in us all, to understand that giving is better than receiving, and the importance of caring for our fellow man—especially those closest to us.
