Scrooge used to be a grumpy old man who didn’t know the definition of happiness. After the shadows he was shown he realized the error of his ways and planned to change back in his reality. Therefore Scrooge’s reality was changed and made him be more appreciative of his family, made him care more for the poor, and made him want to spread Christmas cheer and happiness. Scrooge’s past experience with with his sister coming to pick him up from his school affected who he became in the present by making him realize he should spend more time with his nephew. “‘Always a delicate creature, whom a breath might have withered,’ said the Ghost.

We can undergo and live this tall tale of Scrooge, and we can take away that this frail old man will long live in our hearts to make us remember to be generous and live life to the fullest. We come to learn that Scrooge changes with his attitude. One quote from the text that accurately confirms this is…“No warmth could warm, no wintry weather could chill him.”(page 3). This excerpt from the text explains how troubled and insecure he is inside, using a metaphorical perspective. We, as the readers, can draw inferences and conclusions on how loathsome he seems.
After the ghosts’ show Scrooge his past, present, and future mistakes, he changes into an improved man. “Scrooge was better than his word...he was a second father. He became as good as a friend, as good a master, as good a man, as the good old city knew, or any other good city, town, or borough in the good old world” (Horovitz 654). This evidence illustrates that Scrooge has become a much humane person through the spirits’ visits. This quote also presents how people have begun to look at him in a different manner from before.
No one was known to dislike kids more than Ebenezer Scrooge. In A Christmas Carol, Scrooge was always negative. Around Christmas time, especially, Scrooge disliked children.

Young Augustine and elderly Scrooge both have an imbalance between superficial success and internal happiness. In Augustine’s anecdote about his encounter with a drunk beggar, he is miffed by the happiness of a seemingly hopeless beggar. Despite his success in his career, Augustine’s internal struggle to find meaning prevents him from achieving happiness. On the other hand, Scrooge requires three trips with ghosts to realize that there is a better path of existence. Both Scrooge and Augustine need to learn the value of being a complete person, instead of only pursuing financial or professional success.
I think Leroy was just hardly ever home. Since he has been away from home so much the past few years their marriage has changed, and Leroy doesn’t realize that until he is home recovering from his accident. Things in life are always changing. The short story
This ironic foil is an interesting aspect of the first “autobiography”. While both men have a major imbalance between professional success and internal happiness and rely on the help of ghosts to help overcome these deficiencies, the implication of the stories could not be more different. Imagine if a university’s exemplar was the redemptive tale of Scrooge, that would read like something from The Onion. Even though Confessions relies on more outrageous claims than A Christmas Carol, it is viewed as reasonable source material for the birth of a
Some learn from their change, then it helps their future. To begin with, in A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley “Act 2” Ebenezer Scrooge faced through many changes, but one event that changed his whole life was seeing his grave with the Ghost of Christmas Future. He took Scrooge to see his consequence if he didn’t change his ways. After seeing his grave, he changed the way he acted and his world changed dramatically. He went from being a grumpy man to being
Maya Angelou, an American poet, once said, “If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.” There are many people who don’t do anything to change the things they dislike. On the other hand some people over time change themselves. While Scrooge looked at his past, present, and future he realized he needs to change the way he treats people. In the play A Christmas Carol, by Charles Dickens, Scrooge was guided by 3 spirits teaching him he needs to change to keep people close to him and love him.
