A Christmas Carol
- United States
More informationCharles Dicken's 1843 Christmas masterpiece tells the tale of the spiritual redemption of a man who has lost his humanity. The iconic miser, Ebenezer Scrooge hates Christmas and rejects all his opportunities to celebrate. He has no compassion for those less fortunate than himself and is cruel to everyone.
On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by ghosts. The first is his only friend, Marley, who warns him to change his ways. Scrooge is then visited by three Christmas ghosts who try their very best to scare Scrooge straight.
Scrooge's transformation is the embodiment of the Christmas spirit and his story a tradition for nearly two hundred years.
