Mr. Scrooge, we are asking for no more than a charitable donation!
I will not donate to any such charity! Only the orphanages and workhouses.
My actions have led me to this outcome. Don't do the same! Learn from the visits of the ghosts!
You were once a young, loving boy too!
Two portly gentlemen enter Scrooge's office to ask for donations to the poor, but they leave empty-handed. Scrooge seems to be a grumpy old man that people avoid, even during the holidays.
Why must you limit yourself, Scrooge? Watch as people all over get in the Christmas spirit.
Jacob Marley, Scrooge's dead business partner, appears at Scrooge's house to warn him about his fate if he doesn't change. He tells Scrooge that he will be visited by three ghosts.
Please give me a second chance, spirit! I will change!
The Ghost of Christmas Past appears when the bell tolls "one." He shows Scrooge his past, letting him view the person he once was: a cheerful boy who had an open heart.
Merry Christmas to all!
The Ghost of Christmas Present appears and takes Scrooge around the town on Christmas. Scrooge watches that from the poor to the rich, they can all find a way to celebrate family and get in the Christmas spirit.
The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come takes Scrooge to his own grave. Scrooge learns the value of being there for others and begs for a second chance at life.
After the visits from the three ghosts, Scrooge's personality changes in a positive way. He is no longer an unhappy, miserable old man, but a joyful and merry fellow.
