The locations the spirits take him to display powerful messages that impact the transformation in his character eventually. Towards the end, Scrooge becomes a more kinder, generous person. “A Christmas Carol” evidently shows that even when life is at its most difficult, there are always ways to find peace and happiness.
The ghost of Christmas present took Scrooge to a place in London where people who were less fortunate lived At a lighthouse, two men “joined hands over the rough table at which they sat, and they wished each other a Merry Christmas” (Dickens 6.1). Those people had to work on Christmas, but they made the best of it and had their own Christmas. The ghost of Christmas Present also took Scrooge to his nephew’s house. At his nephew’s house, they were playing a game and Scrooge’s nephew was thinking of something while the other had to figure out what it was. He was thinking of “a savage animal, an animal that growled and grunted sometimes, and lived in London.”
What he experiences with the ghosts changes his perspective to be a more kind and generous person to himself and others. Throughout the Christmas Carol, Scrooge experiences a traumatic, and life changing moments and changes himself into a kind, generous, and merry person. Before Christmas, Scrooge displayed his nastiness in two ways, Scrooge clearly has no good emotions or feelings. Scrooge is a businessman who runs a company with his partner, but unfortunately he passed away,“ Scrooge was not so cut up by the sad event of my death, but that he was an excellent man of business on the very day of my funeral, and solemnized it with an undoubted bargain.
He is in these locks because he did not live life to the fullest. He warns Scrooge that three ghost are coming to help Scrooge open his eyes and see what he is missing in life and to cheer up. The ghost show him the past, present, and future and it is usually something that starts happy then turns terrible . The first ghost visited scrooge at 1:00AM and took him back to the past and showed how happy he was in the past and how sour he became further on in life. The second ghost that visited showed him in the present all the poor people that were enjoying themselves even one of his workers Bob Cratchit and his family and tried to make him see sense and joy in Christmas.
“A Christmas Carol”, by Charles Dickens is a story about Ebenezer Scrooge an old greedy miser who is visited by three spirits the day before Christmas because he is selfish and he needs help from the spirits to alter his cruel-hearted ways so he doesn’t end up paying for his uncharitable behaviour towards others when he is dead. The ghosts show him his past, his present, and his future, to show him that Christmas is really about giving and to help him realize he needs to change his ways. Throughout the novel multiple themes are displayed that categorize the importance of the novel. However, giving is the most important notion because Fezziwig makes his employees and family happy,
Though set during Christmas, the story has a meaning that relates to people year round. Dickens carries this Theme of compassion throughout the entire story, starting with characters around Scrooge and ending with Scrooge himself. When we are introduced to the nephew Fred, we see how even though Scrooge is a old grumpy man with no friends and who scares off anyone who may dare to speak to him, Fred still invites him to the family Christmas party. Fred knows Scrooge will not accept, but perhaps knowing Scrooge is the only blood family he has left, he makes an effort.
He continues on saying “By now he has probably taken her places, shown her restaurants and zoos, gone camping in the wilderness, skied.” We can tell from this that he is emotional and most likely jealous of this new older guy that Dawn has. He also tries to find a scapegoat from the trouble he has caused and says, “You could say she got me into this, so Dawn should get me out.” He tries to blame his actions of stealing on Dawn because he was simply just getting her a Christmas present. He has not gotten over her and seems to be having a really hard time getting over Dawn.
Dickens uses Fred as an implication of Scrooges is tenancy to exclude any possible happiness from his life and how such decisions will lead him to tedious misery. Fred approaches his uncle with a “merry Christmas!” A delightful atmosphere suddenly created through Fred's upbeat character. We are shown Scrooge does not lack the presence of a family with great love for him, but lacks the ability to uptake the offers his family make, requesting his presence seen to be humid and dismal to others but seen as the presence of their uncle to themselves. The excessive use of exclamation marks shows us Scrooge although rude and dismissive towards others is accepted in the presence of his nephew Fred.
