Scrooge was a greedy, mean old man. Absorbed with his work, his hard exterior seemed to never break. He refused to dine with his nephew, his only family. When two gentlemen showed up to ask for a donation, Scrooge refused. He even barked away carolers.
Scrooge gets a visit from the ghost of Jacob Marley, his dead business partner, late one night. Marley was bound by chains, his sins from his lived life. He tells Scrooge to not be like he was. Marley warns Scrooge that he will be getting a visit from 3 spirits.
The first spirit, The Ghost of Christmas Past, shows Scrooge the times he went through on his past during Christmas. Scrooge went through the times with his sister, his old boss Fezziwig, and even the painful break-up of him and his ex-girlfriend Belle.
"The spirits have done it all in one night! A merry Christmas to all!"
The second spirit, The Ghost of Christmas Present, showed Scrooge people in his life right then. He showed his nephew and his family playing games. He showed him how happy the Cratchits were, even though they were poor. Scrooge saw Tiny Tim, and asked if he'd live.
The final spirit, The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, showed Scrooge the visions of the future. He saw how no one mourned the death of a rich man. He saw people who stole from his dead body. When Scrooge saw his name upon the gravestone of the man, he begged for mercy.
When Scrooge awoke, he saw himself back in his room. He was now so joyful and full of glee. His first good deed was sending a huge turkey to the Cratchits. Then he made a donation for those in need. Afterwards, he had dinner and played games with his nephew. Lastly, the next morning he raised his clerk, Bob's salary. He even offered to assist his family. It seemed to be a very merry Christmas indeed.
