“The righteousness of the blameless keeps his ways straight, but the wicked falls by his own wickedness”(Prov. 11:5). The story, “A Christmas Carol”, is about a cold-hearted man named Scrooge who transforms himself into a jolly, kind man when three Ghosts teach Scrooge about the spirit of Christmas. In the story, Charles Dickens illustrates the theme of how no one is past redemption through the transformation of Scrooge’s personality by the lessons of the Spirits. At the beginning of the story, Scrooge’s selfish personality is revealed, and the Ghost of Christmas Past comes and shows him the memories and truth of his life long ago.

I think Jacob came back to haunt Scrooge to teach him how to be a more of a kind person. Scrooge's nephew, pays his uncle a visit and invites him to his once a year Christmas party. Two broad gentlemen also came by to ask Scrooge for a donation to their charity.

In the text it says, “The clerk in the tank applauds, looks at the furious Scrooge and pokes out his tiny fire…” When I read this, I see a man with an angry face at Scrooge holding a candle with a tiny fire. I saw what was happening and I felt that urge of frustration he had. I believe the audio version of “A Christmas Carol” is better because I can hear background music and I can hear the noise of thunder and the boom of the lightning. The thing is you can’t visualize as well, and you don’t hear the voices the way you want to hear them.
