Ebenezer Scrooge was a cold man who dispiesed Christmas along with anything to do with it. He was rude to people and was full of hatred.
As he was walking home, he had seen a dead man's face on his doorknocker. He'd ignored the occurance, but later the man had reapeared and warned Scrooge about three spirits that would appear that night.
The apparition's words were true and that night three ghosts had appeared. The first ghost had shown Scrooge his past childhood. Then, the next ghost showed him everyone celebrating Christmas although life was tough for them, Finally, the last ghost took Scrooge to a dead man, and showed him how nobady had cared about the mans passing. Scrooge had later found out that the man was him, and he wanted another chance to be a better man. Scrooge had kept his word and became a kinder person from then on.
