Storyboard Text

  • Symbolism
  • "But the strangest thing about it was, that from the crown of its head there sprang a bright clear jet of light, by which all is visible; and which was doubtless the occasion of its using, in its duller moments,a great extinguisher for a cap, which it now held under its arm."
  • Indirect characterization
  • "But he couldn't replenish it, for scrooge kept the coalbox in his own room; and so surely as the clerk came in with the shovel, the master predicted that it would be necessary for them to part."
  • Theme
  • "The chain he drew was clasped about his middle. It was made... of cashboxes, keys, padlocks, ledgers, deeds, and heavy purses wrought in steel."
  • "What idol has displaced you?"
  • The appearance of the ghost of Christmas past is symbolic of scrooge looking back at his past. The ghost's head symbolizes it showing scrooge his past that made him change. It shows that his past was good because the people he knew cared about others.
