At 1:00 a.m. the night before Christmas, Scrooge was visited by the ghost of Christmases before. This ghost showed scrooge how happy he was then. The ghost also showed him where he started to go in the wrong direction. Later that night at 2:00 a.m., the ghost of Christmas present showed scrooge how Christmas would go that morning. The employee for Scrooge had a very sick son and would not make it much longer and Scrooge did not realize how bad he was until the ghost showed him.
The first scene the old man is taken to is his school. During Christmastime, Scrooge was left alone at school without any family to come home to because his father held a grudge against him. After watching how his younger self saw the character in his book “come to life,” Scrooge states, “There was a boy singing a Christmas Carol at my door last night. I should have given him something.” Soon after, Scrooge sees his sister, Fan come to greet him.
Merry Christmas! Out upon merry Christmas! What 's Christmas time to you but a time for paying bills without money; a time for finding yourself a year older, but not an hour richer; a time for balancing your books and having every item in 'em through a round dozen of months presented dead against you? If I could work my will," said Scrooge indignantly, "every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas ' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!.”
The ghost took him to a poor man 's house that showed them admiring his treasures that they stole when he died. He is in denial because he doesn’t want to accept the fact that they were stealing his own items. Next he takes him to Bob Cratchit’s house. It shows Bob mourning over Tiny Tim’s death. Stave 5 -
He also visits his Bob Cratchit family at Christmas looking through an impaled window Scrooge can see Bob's crippled son “Tiny Tim” (Whos name is Tim.) who looks rather ill and quite poor! Scrooge asks the ghost that is Tim going to die the spirit replies saying “If these shadows remain unaltered by the Future, the child will die.”. This, in my opinion, is implying that unless Scrooge does not change Bob Cratchit's wage to a decent amount then Tiny Tim will in fact die!

In A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, the protagonist Ebenezer Scrooge is a cold, tight fisted elderly man with a misanthropic nature. He receives visits by three ghosts, each giving him a chance to change the outcome of his future. Each ghost has a significant impact on Scrooge. The Ghost of Christmas Past enables Scrooge to relive the days coming up to Christmas from his childhood up to his teen years.
The ghost of Christmas future shows Scrooge what happens after his possible death, and 3 people are seen selling his items that he needed to live and rest. One of the 3 people say ‘he died with no one by his side’ which leads to the fact that Scrooge loves nobody but his coin. The ghost lets Scrooge also see that Tiny Tim has died, significantly telling Scrooge that he has to change or he will die and so will Tiny Tim. However, Scrooge decides to change his ways once and for all, and he finally pledges to be a kind man to others, with no potential signs of threat or vile manners. The whole point of the spirit’s visit was to use the final blow on Scrooge’s Arctic organs and give him a few more scenarios of what happens in the possible future.
On page 99, his father had fallen asleep in the snow and nearly died in his sleep, and the so-called ‘gravediggers’ were planning on disposing of his body. Even though Eli could have taken his father’s clothing to warm himself, Eli was convinced his father was still alive and begged the gravediggers not to take him, slapping his father harder and harder until he woke up, scarcely alive. This is just one example of that deep concern. On page 91 of Night, Eli is shown to have a moment of brutish thought.
Scrooge in "The Christmas Carol" shows how much he hates Christmas, and everyone he works with to change to a happy person with the help of others. Scrooge emphasizes, "What a fine day fellow... An Intelligent boy, a remarkable boy. " This is a critical part of this novel because this shows Scrooge overcame his dislike of Christmas and his entire disliking of people. Instead of rudely gesturing to people, he is now starting to act nicer, and more mature.

In the first stave of Christmas Carol I think a theme is hate. Scrooge obviously doesn’t like Christmas, but dislikes those who even talk about it. When his nephew came in he said “merry christmas uncle Scrooge and may God save you!” This quote was on page 3. His nephew, obviously tries to get along with his uncle, but Scrooge refuses to cooperate.
