Charles Dickens novella "A Christmas Carol" is about a man named Ebenezer Scrooge who is a really cold-hearted man and only wants money in his life, saying he would rather die than go to his nephew's, Fred, Christmas dinner, giving only one piece of coal to his clerk, Bob, and treating him really poorly, and showing to charity workers that the poor isn't his business and it's their fault they are like that. Scrooge's old business partner, Marley who died 7 years ago, decides to visit scrooge warning him that 3 spirits will visit and they will give him a chance to become nice. The first spirit shows him the past and shows him how he grew up as a child with Christmas, his only friends were his books, so he thought about how he never had a Christmas as a child and wants to make a good one for a child in the present day. Next, the second ghost brings him to the present and shows him how other families are celebrating Christmas even if they are poor like Scrooge's clerk, Bob, and have a crippled son, Tiny Tim, and scrooge starts to care more and more about the world. The climax of the story is with the last ghost who brings him to the future and shows him how after Scrooge dies that everyone hated him and even other business men didn't like him and the ghost shows him his own grave and Scrooge announces he will become nice and generous to the people around him and everywhere. Finally, the story ends when scrooge wakes up and gives a huge turkey to Bob and gives a donation to the charity workers and finally goes to dinner with Fred. The theme of this story is that it's never too late to change, the future isn't fixed yet.
