At the beginning, one of the few phrases Scrooge would say was, “Good afternoon!”, which he used to dismiss a conversation he deemed “unworthwhile”.

For Instance, the ghost takes Scrooge to a lighthouse where men are working, not able to be with their families for Christmas, but however, they all show a positive mood toward the situation. Another Instance of the good mood that seems to radiate from the holiday, is the bakery in town. All of the families who are too poor to cook food at their own homes take a dish to the bakery to heat it up, and though the food is meager,
