The ghost of Christmas future shows Scrooge what happens after his possible death, and 3 people are seen selling his items that he needed to live and rest. One of the 3 people say ‘he died with no one by his side’ which leads to the fact that Scrooge loves nobody but his coin. The ghost lets Scrooge also see that Tiny Tim has died, significantly telling Scrooge that he has to change or he will die and so will Tiny Tim. However, Scrooge decides to change his ways once and for all, and he finally pledges to be a kind man to others, with no potential signs of threat or vile manners. The whole point of the spirit’s visit was to use the final blow on Scrooge’s Arctic organs and give him a few more scenarios of what happens in the possible future.
He is ready to take on what the Spirit has for him because he knows that is the only way he will become a better man. The Ghost of Christmas Future takes Scrooge to different moments in the future, where a rich man died and no one cares about it. The Spirit then takes Scrooge to the man’s headstone, where he sees that his name is on it and realizes that he is the cold-hearted man who no one cared about. He then says, “ ‘Assure me that I yet may change these shadows you shown me, by an altered life’ ” (Dickens 18).
All this makes for an awfully tragic tale, but everyone knows how this story ends. After Scrooge is visited by three ghosts his point of view is changed and he becomes a better man. He starts to look for the good in things, rather than the bad. In this story we see an example that it's never too late to change for the better.
I awaited the Spirit’s support for Scrooge's new-found sense of selflessness, along with the Spirit being depicted comforting Scrooge when the Spirit tells Scrooge that Tiny Tim is destined to die. What contributed to my shock was the fact that the Spirit of the Present is conveyed as the most friendly of the three spirits Scrooge encounters throughout the book. This is because the Spirit of the Present is first presented to readers eating a jolly feast with plenty of guests, joyfully passing down food. Furthermore, the passage puzzled me because it shows Scrooge transforming from a selfish man to a caring old man. However, as Scrooge is already changing from the beginning of his journey with the Spirit of the Present, I wondered why does Scrooge need to visit a third ghost.
He pointed out Mr. Cathey consistent bombardments of challenges and how he handle each situation. Every good point in his life such as becoming a father was met with a bad point in which he couldn’t go to school because he became a father. The author allowed us to feel happy for the situations that seemed any reasonable person would feel good about and upset about the unforeseen variables that tend to find Mr. Cathey. The author makes sure you feel the joy and pain of a young man who could have made it to a higher level but came up short because of his bad decision
It comes up in every chapter of the book, starting in the first chapter, where he walks down the sidewalk, ignoring everyone, to the second chapter where he adores his master as much as his master is fond of him. It is there in the third chapter, where Scrooge's assistant is kind to him, in hope that Scrooge will be nicer back. It appears again in the fourth and fifth chapters where he wishes to be nice so others are nice too him, and then becomes nice with the retaliation of others being nice to him. The whole story is ghosts trying to convince Scrooge to be nicer, so others will be nicer to him. The Title of the book could very well be “Scrooge being convinced that being nice is better than being mean, so that others will be nice to him once he’s dead.”

However, the younger citizens of the cottage enter and the creature is back to square one as they immediately react defensively against it- conveying how the creature will never be accepted with such distorted appearance since it is immediately identified as inhumane and

It is Christmas time! A time where families come from all around the world. I mean from all around the world from Mexico to Texas. I heard that the Christmas carol is the best movie to watch on Christmas. The Christmas carol is about the old guy that does not like Christmas, but his partner said that three Ghosts are going to meet him.
