A Christmas Carol


There are many adaptations of the classic Charles Dickens’ novella A Christmas Carol. However, nothing will ever come close to touching the souls of those all around the world as well as the original has. The novella chronicles the story of business extraordinaire Ebenezer Scrooge; a man whose sole purpose in life was to make money, and keep it for himself. Scrooge cares for nothing and no one, and he plans to keep it that way; until he is met with his maker- that is. The dark story brings light to the true meaning of life, love, and happiness. The tale begins with Scrooge being haunted by his former business partner, and old dear friend Jacob Marley, who has come to warn him of his life choices. Marley has spent his time in purgatory for the life he had lived himself and wasted. Now he has come back to help Scrooge change his ways before it is too late, and he has brought along with him a little help in the form of Ghosts from Christmas’ Past, Present, and Future.  Will Scrooge change his ways and open his heart to the world he shut out long ago? Read the true Christmas Carol to find out.
