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. Then, Scrooge was visited by three spirits: past, present, and future. As these spirits showed Scrooge events, Scrooge started seeing life in a different perspective.
In doing this he thought Christmas would not come and all of the Whos would be upset. This, however, is disproved by the singing in Christmas spirit that the Whos performed. Perplexing the Grinch, “he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore… “Maybe Christmas… doesn’t come from a store… perhaps… (Christmas) means a little bit more!””(39). This revelation alters the Grinch’s perception of Christmas vastly. By allowing himself to make an effort to understand Christmas he embraced the Who culture.
The reader may also infer that the mother she may think the father is a bad influence on her son. I think this because of how different the father and son act. The father is a rule-breaker and does not plan ahead well while the son does not like to break rules and always plans ahead. Although not much information is told about the mother, you can predict that she would have been very angry if her son had been brought home any later than Christmas eve. You can predict this because when the father wasn’t allowed to drive through the snow he stated, “Your mother will never forgive me for this,” (Wolff 34).
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.
On Show Choir When people hear the words “show choir” their minds may automatically think of the TV show “Glee”, but that isn’t exactly a great representation of what we do. Many people are ignorant about what show choir is because they haven’t had experience with it or no one has told them. I don’t blame them because I know how confusing it can be but I’ve learned through my own experiences in show choir and through my sister’s experiences. It has taken me a lot of time to fully understand what we do but I want other people to know just what it is as well. What is it?
Print. “A Modest Proposal to Destroy Western Civilization as We Know It” a paper by Bill McKibben to give us insight about the lost holiday spirit. Christmas has always been a time for family and friends to come together to celebrate one and other but that has all changed due to the shopping and decorating. Mckibben believes that we need to return to our roots and agrees with his church that we should not spend more than a hundred dollars on Christmas, this includes food gifts, and decorations. The gifts themselves are home maid with love and the food is caught and cooked themselves not by the grocery store
Then comes the spirit of Christmas Future or yet to come. The point of Christmas past was to show how Ebenezer wasn’t rude then. He actually liked Christmas. He stopped liking Christmas because his father stopped liking him. ( Dickens)The only reason he stopped liking him.
The British used India’s abundance of resources to their advantage. Britain’s trade with India in 1860 was six times more than British trade was with Egypt and it was twelve times more than British trade with Brazil. By 1866, India's trade with Britain escalated. Britain gained an abundance of resources, while India received little in return (Doc 1). Britain bought India's natural resources, such as cotton, cheaply, and would then use their Industrial machines to make exceptional goods, which they sold back to the Indian people at a higher price (Doc 2).This was extremely profitable for the British (Imperialism in India).
December has always been a religiously diverse month, containing many holidays, including Christmas, Hanukkah, and Bodhi Day. Despite Canada’s cultural mosaic, though, one of these holidays is much more prominent: Christmas. Though celebrated by many people of all different religions, Christmas is still undeniably a Christian holiday, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. Just because Christmas is easily the most celebrated December holiday doesn’t mean it’s the only one, though. As most people are unwrapping presents with dozens of family members around them, minorities who do not celebrate this are forced to feel left out of this time of the year This is an example of Christian privilege, which is the idea that people who are Christian have
What Drove the Sugar Trade? The sugar trade began in 1655 and became a big deal to Britain. Wealthy men would buy property, produce sugar, and sell it to their home country for a low price. (Document 7) Sugar was a product that could be bought and sold easily, since it was in high demand. (Document 3) This meant that England gained money.
This is because it breaks the holiday tradition and people overspend on these Christmas “deals”. However, if you love Christmas time, so much, why only celebrate it in the month of December when you could celebrate all year long? Stay tuned for more information on this argument! First off, when we start signalizing Christmas by putting up garnishes before Thanksgiving, we forget what the concept of what Thanksgiving really is about. Thanksgiving is a time to give gratitude for our family and celebrate all the blessings we have.

Christmas is a jolly, time for everyone to visit family, eat, and give presents as well as receive them. In A Christmas Carol, it’s Christmastime and everyone is jolly, spreading Christmas cheer, except Mr. Scrooge. Mr. Scrooge is avoided by everyone and often frightens people, not to mention he’s mean. He also he also doesn’t like Christmas, so every year, his family has to spread the joy without him. Later Scrooge is visited by three spirits who try to help him change his ways.
As our country reached the late 1800’s, Americans found themselves face to face with era known as the ‘Gilded Age’. Companies were created and grew rapidly during this time period. Some of the most famous entrepreneurs were John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie, who seemed to be the perfect models for the ‘rags to riches’ story. Many people debate which entrepreneur was a better role-model. Due to his low prices, the high demand for his products, and the way he sought to eliminate any possible competition, John D. Rockefeller is clearly the better role-model for today’s entrepreneurs.
