Jacob Marley dies at midnight on Christmas Eve. His business partner, Ebenezer Scrooge, does not shed a tear. He wants to bury Jacob quickly, cheaply and return to the business of making money. Scrooge is unkind to everyone. He refuses to spend
Christmas with his nephew, Fred, he will not to donate money to charity to help the poor and he cuts the wages of his loyal Clerk, Bob Cratchit.
That night, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of Jacob Marley, risen from the dead to warn him that if he does not change his ways he will be doomed forever. Three ghosts will visit Scrooge: The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present and The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come. Scrooge is terrified!
The Ghost of Christmas Past arrives and takes Scrooge on a journey through
Christmases from his past. He sees himself as a lonely child, an apprentice clerk and a young man in love. The Ghost of Christmas Present shows him Bob Cratchit’s family. They are poor and struggling. The Ghost also takes him to see his nephew Fred celebrating Christmas. The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come scares him the most by showing visions of his death.
When Scrooge wakes up on Christmas Day, he is relieved to be back in his own bed. The ghosts have taught him the error of his ways. He is full of relief, joy and excitement. He buys the biggest turkey for the Cratchit family, apologises to people he has offended and spends Christmas Day with his nephew, Fred.
