Perhaps the most beloved of Charles Dickens' works is “A Christmas Carol.” It touches on the lives of Ebenezer Scrooge and Bob Cratchit. Scrooge is a wealthy miser. Cratchit is his poor and humble employee. Married with several children, Cratchit lives in a house filled with love and good will. Scrooge, on the other hand, lives alone with his money.
The ghost of Jacob Marley, Scrooge's deceased partner, comes to warn Scrooge against following the same path Marley did. Soon, Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future all pay visits to Scrooge. The story follows the changes that can occur when closely examining one's life and choices.
