“Before I draw nearer to that stone to which you point,” said Scrooge, “answer me one question. Are these the shadows of the things that Will be, or are they shadows of things that May be, only?”
I don’t make merry myself at Christmas and I can’t afford to make idle people merry. I help to support the establishments I have mentioned—they cost enough; and those who are badly off must go there.”

No, no,” said Scrooge, “I am in earnest. Go and buy it, and tell ’em to bring it here, that I may give them the direction where to take it. Come back with the man, and I’ll give you a shilling. Come back with him in less than five minutes and I’ll give you half-a-crown!”
Because scrooge doesn't want to die he asks the ghost of Christmas yet to come if this future will surly happen or if it might happen and the ghost responds by shaking his finger which indicates no.
Because Scrooge won't donates towards the poor and destitute on Christmas he shows greed, avarice and stinginess and that is indirect charactarization
“The school is not quite deserted,” said the Ghost. “A solitary child, neglected by his friends, is left there still.”
Because Scrooge now wants to be nice he offers to give a boy half a crown if he comes back with the poulterer so he can buy a massive turkey to give to his clerk.
Because scrooge was cold hearted the weather outside symbolizes his attitude and personzality
The heaviest rain, and snow, and hail, and sleet, could boast of the advantage over him in only one respect. They often “came down” handsomely, and Scrooge never did.
