When the White Witch asked how did the Fox and other squirrels have glasses and food to hold up a party, the Fox told her that they all came from Father Christmas. After hearing this news, the White Witch was at first too astounding to know about this news, and then quickly in the next second, she was very angry about the fact that Father Christmas had been this place.

When Marley first enters the room with scrooge he is instantly given a supernatural manor and was presented as very frightening. “Scrooge was not a man to be frightened” this gives the reader the impression that what it coming up the stairs is not something normal and is almost foreshadowing the fact that it is a normal human being walking up the stairs. Dickens uses sounds to present the ghost coming up the stairs “echoed through the house like thunder” this simile that Dickens uses makes the sound seem so loud that it begins to shake the house.
