Bah Humbug, sometimes people can be a real “Scrooge.” A Christmas Carol has been made into many movies and has been performed countless times as a play. It is a beloved Christmas story and has made an unhappy elder shaped hole our hearts. The 1984 movie and the classic have a lot of similarities and differences.
Compare and Contrast Rusty Eric once said that “As long as greed is stronger than compassion, there will always be suffering.” Greed is something that is all too common in our world. It has taken over many lives in the past, present, and it will still continue in the future. Ebenezer Scrooge, an old, cruel man in the a drama A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, is one of the many who have been consumed by the lonely, suffering life of the greedy. In this drama, Scrooge has lost all liking for Christmas and has shut himself off from the world until he is visited by three ghosts that show him the true meaning of Christmas, and restore the love he once had for his family and friends. Compared to the drama, the movie The Christmas Carol has many similarities, and has brought the story to life although there are a few differences.
When people are asked to name some of the classic Christmas movies, they are quick to say movies such as Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (1964), Frosty the Snowman (1969), and How the Grinch Stole Christmas (2000), but they forget to mention the dismal, chilling The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993). But why is that, doesn’t Tim Burton still show the joy that Christmas brings, but in a slightly new perspective? Aren’t The Nightmare Before Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas quite similar depictions of how some may deal with the “Christmas blues”? The Nightmare Before Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas both originated as poems with rhythms similar to most Christmas poems. Tim Burton and Dr. Seuss both portray the cliché themes
I think the movie version is better than the book. The reason for this is because the movie has a lot more character than the book does. You get to see what the characters look like, while the book doesn’t give a good description of the people in the book at all. You can feel the mood better in the movie because of all of the extra things, like the lightning and fog, to capture the mood.
They both provided the same message, show love to others, and don’t forget the Christmas spirit. I enjoyed both versions and their true message.
Compare and Contrast Christmas Carol Book VS. Christmas Carol Movie Are you into the Christmas spirit where everyone is enjoying their time with their family, then the Christmas carol is the right book for you. Today I am going to be discussing about the similarities and the differences between the book and the movie, in the book and the movie Scrooge was the main character they both had the part where Scrooge had an argument with his Nephew. In the movie and the book they had the same types of lessons learned. The difference is that in the movie Scrooge had a dog while in the book, it never mentions that Scrooge had a dog.
This Christmas character shows a positive image of someone who has a big heart but can also be confusing to other children and adults who have never heard of this American tradition. My grandmother who is a native to Thailand told me that before coming to the United States she never heard or celebrated Christmas. She did not celebrate Santa Claus or the birth of Jesus Christ. In Thailand, they treat the month of December like an ordinary month and ordinary day. They would find it weird to see Christmas trees and Christmas wreaths hung up on doors.

The root word “mas”, coming from the word “mass” means to do in large groups (Dictionary.com). Christmas, as we know, is the celebration of Jesus’ birth. However, as supported by the definition of the root words, Christmas is a holiday where everyone acts more christ-like. In A Christmas Carol, we see many characters carrying out this definition. We see the Cratchits being thankful for the few things they have, we see Fred inviting Scrooge to Christmas dinner even though he knows his uncle will only turn down the invitation, and we see charities searching for money to help the poor.

My Movie Argument What do you think? What would you argue? What theme do you think the movie is? Some people believe the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas is more of a Halloween and some people believe that this movie is more Christmas themed.
The Grinch Who Stole Christmas The Grinch who stole Christmas is one of my favorite Dr. Seuss books and one of my favorite Christmas movies. I found 3 things similar to one another in the book and the movie which had the Grinch who hated Christmas, the Who’s who loved Christmas, and the Grinch stole all of the presents and food. One identical thing I found in the movie and book was that the Grinch hated Christmas. If they didn’t put the Grinch’s hate for Christmas in both the book and, he would have no reason to steal Christmas and it wouldn’t have been a very good movie.
How the Grinch Stole Christmas and A Christmas Carol are two very similar stories. In the stories A Christmas Carol and How The Grinch Stole Christmas, there are two characters who are a good example of this. A Christmas Carol is a story about a grumpy old man named Ebenezer Scrooge who only cares about money and needs to be taught a lesson. The story teaches a very good lesson, and modern authors still draw from it’s storyline. They also draw from the lessons it teaches while people read it. The second story is called How the Grinch Stole Christmas. It has to do with a “Who” who is very mean, and the whole town, except one girl, hates him. It is very similar to A Christmas Carol, when it comes to the main character. Both of their societies sort of reject them, and they are very nasty people.
Compare and Contrast A Christmas Carol is full of many twists and turns, and has been written in many different versions. Writers have taken artistic liberties and have added or taken away to the beloved Christmas story to make it their own. No two versions are going to be exactly similar, and most definitely are going to have many differences. The play and the movie both follow the basic plotline of the classic novel, A Christmas Carol.
As a young adult, I can say that Christmas gift giving is likewise to language. Similar to how I grasped the language of English and developed it as I got older, gift giving has also grown with me throughout my childhood up till now. Both have evolved into society and culture. Christmas has transformed into a "cultural ritual" celebrated year after year all because of social norms. The idea that society celebrates Christmas and gift giving without having to be forced represents how culture regulates societal behavior.
