Greed is a selfish reliance on money and wealth, and poor Ebenezer Scrooge is suffering from the horrid disease. A Christmas Carol is a well-known story about a man named Ebenezer Scrooge who believes there is no joy in Christmas. There are a few differences between the play and the movie filmed in 1984, yet, there are still numerous similarities to be able to allow the plot to flow smoothly; for example: the climax, the plot, and the resolution. The theater production of A Christmas Carol, takes place in the wintertime with a character named Marley narrating saying, “Scrooge! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous, old sinner!” (Dickens, 1).
In the movie Ebenezer Scrooge is an old mean man who hates Christmas. On Christmas Eve Scrooge is visited by different ghosts. The first ghost he was visited by was his former business Partner Jacob Marley. Jacob was in shackles when he arrived. Scrooge asks why and Marley states he wears the chain in which he forged in life.
The ghost takes Scrooge to see and hear things for himself. Overhearing a conversation from a group of businessman, Scrooge hears them talking about the death of a rich man and how all the shady people take his stuff to go and sell it to make a profit outs of it. Scrooge then travels to the Cratchit's house and sees that the family is struggling to bear with the death of Tiny Tim, and Scrooge, as frightened as can be, asks the ghost to know who is going to die.

This is what Scrooge said to Jacob Marley, his old business partner. He was told that he would be haunted by three spirits and after he was haunted by the third spirit, he realized that he was going to die alone. He wanted to change that. It was probably very hard for him to change his way of life towards Christmas. The play of “A Christmas Carol” is very good.
