  • A Christmas Carol
  •  Charles Dickens  A Christmas Carol  displays many themes that are still relevent to life today. One of these themes is ; money does not dictate a person's happiness, love and family do.
  • The Cratchit Family
  • Scrooge's Fate
  • Ebenezer Scrooge
  • By Julia Evers  
  • Fezziwig's Party
  • The theme is shown at the Cratchit household when the entire  family is gathered around the fireplace with their  custard in hand.   Despite being  poor and desperate for money the family is full of  joy and love.   The small children are excited, and even Tiny Tim, in his  fragile state, has happiness to share  exclaiming "God bless us everyone!"(648).  The family is purely happy to be together, and the subject of money, or lack of, is never even mentioned.
  • The Ghost of Jacob Marley
  • The theme is shown in the scene where  Scrooge's worst fears are confirmed, that he is the dead man  which  so many people  despised.  This relates to the theme because   here we see that   even though Scrooge lived a life full of riches, he  ended up dying alone, with no one to love or  mourn him. He  was  hated by so many because of the life he lived. People on the street were not saddened by his death, instead they  said things such as   "I thought he'd never die"(658) and made jokes  about his passing. So even though he was rich in life. He was   alone and unhappy in life.
  • Scrooge and Belle
  •  This scene  depicts Fezziwig's party which he throws for all his workers , friends, and family.  This displays the theme  that money  does n't determine someone's happiness because  although Fezziwig spent  very little on the party,"he spent but a few   punds of your mortal money:three or four perhaps"(637)  but everyone at the party  is bursting with joy to be with one another on Christmas eve that  the amount of money spent has no signifigance to them.
  • This scene shows when Jacob  Marley comes to tell Scroogeof the three Spirits that will come to haunt him that night. This shows the theme  because  like Scrooge, Marley in life was wealthy but he only  ever was devoted to his work and money  he says that "in life my spirit never rove beyond the narrow limits of our money-changing hole;"(628). He never shared any  kindness  and this doomed him in his after life.  Leaving him misreble with his chains of regret and in a constant tortured stae for all of eternity.
  • The theme is shown in the scene with the ghost of Christmas past  where  Belle decides to break off her engagement with Scrooge.  She tells him that  "another idol has replaced me". When he inquires what this may be she tells him "a golden one"(638).  Belle means that  money has replaced her in Scrooge's  heart. The theme is displayed in this  scene because although Scroog e has  a surplus of money, his fiance is not happy with  him because he doesn't love her.
