The second ghost demonstrates to Scrooge how detrimental his greed and harsh demeanor are to everyone around him. The ghost also demonstrates to Scrooge that those without money, like as the Cratchits, may be far happy than he is. This makes Scrooge realize that he must change his ways if he wants to bring happiness to others.
He discovers what is lacking in his life. The second spirit is the Christmas gift. He takes Scrooge to observe how others act and comment about him. He demonstrates to Scrooge the affection that the Cratchets have for one another despite their lack of resources. This makes Scrooge realize that he is alone in London and needs to make friends if he is going to survive.
Scrooge decides to give money away to those who need it most but changes his mind when he realizes that they just take more from people who are already poor.
The third spirit is Jacob Marley who returns as a zombie to warn Scrooge that a chain letter is circulating which will bring death to those who steal money from children's eyes. Scrooge breaks the chain and saves himself but realizes that he has lost everyone close to him. This makes him understand that he must change if he wants to save himself and those around him.
Marley appears again at the end of the story telling Scrooge that his former business partner, Ebenezer Scrooge, has been brought back to life. Before Marley can continue, however, a voice calls out "Merry Christmas!" and Scrooge finds himself standing in front of his own tombstone with "He was my friend" written on it. It turns out that everything had been a dream.
When Scrooge questions the first ghost about why he has come to visit, the spirit informs him that he is there to enhance his well-being. Scrooge is then sent back in time by the ghost to view his past self at points in his life when he was a different, more optimistic, and less greedy person. The last scene shows Scrooge as a child where the ghost tells him that he must forgive others like himself if he wants to be forgiven by God.
In conclusion, the ghost tells Scrooge that unless he learns to love others like himself, he will never be able to love anyone else properly. This idea drives the message of the story forward as it makes us question whether or not Scrooge can truly change his ways and become a good person.
Do you think that Scrooge can change his ways?
Scrooge discovers that his actions have shaped his destiny. Because of his avarice, he had to give up the love of his life. Scrooge realizes the true cost of his greed after the visits of the three spirits. He sees folks who have considerably less than he has and are far happy than he is. This makes him change his mind about Christmas and decides to give back the money he has been keeping all this time.
Ending lyrics: So, my dear friends, let us cherish home for it can be taken away from us at any moment. Remember, if you want to keep your loved ones happy, then you should share your feelings with them. Don't keep them in your heart only!
Home is where the heart is..
Even though Scrooge doesn't know it yet, he learns these lessons at the end of "A Christmas Carol". Bob Cratchit and Tiny Tim both pass away, but Mr. Fezziwig and Maggy remain forever young. Scrooge realizes that people come and go in our lives but those we love stay with us forever.
The Christmas Present's Ghost The second ghost is the Ghost of Christmas Present, who leads Scrooge to the Cratchit family home, where he witnesses the family's humility in the face of poverty. He is saddened by the sight of Tiny Tim, who is unwell and frail. As he walks away, Scrooge sees his own children, who have just arrived for a visit, and realizes that his life has been a waste. He then joins the Ghost of Christmas Future in leaving his mortal coil.
The Ghost of Christmas Past takes Scrooge back in time to his childhood home, where he sees himself as a young boy playing with his brother, Donald. His father, Robert, shows him how they make money by trading goods, and teaches him the value of hard work. When an old school friend of Scrooge's named Fezziwig invites them both down to London, things take a turn for the worse when their train crashes and kills Fezziwig. But before he died, Fezziwig had made all of his friends swear that they would find another way to earn money, so they can travel down to London and join him on his next voyage around the world. Overwhelmed by grief, Scrooge agrees to go to London to meet this "friend" one last time. However, once there, he finds that Fezziwig has saved up enough money to continue his travels without him.
Scrooge is a miserly guy who appears to despise others at the start of the narrative. He won't allow his clerk have a warm fire, and he won't partake in any Christmas celebrations. But then the three ghosts appear to Scrooge and show him visions. After that, he entirely transforms into a different character. He becomes compassionate, the heart of Christmas.
The first verse of "A Christmas Carol" tells us that Scrooge is a "cold-hearted man." This means that he has no feelings for other people. He doesn't care if they are happy or not. This isn't something that changes just because it is Christmas time. The more important thing is that Scrooge does not want to suffer pain himself, so he tries to avoid feeling emotions altogether.
At the beginning of the story, when asked by his clerk if he would like to be visited by three spirits during Christmas time, Scrooge says no. But later on he changes his mind and allows his clerk to set up a fire in order for the spirits' messages to reach him. This shows that even though he hates others thinking of them as friendly forces, he still wants to know what kind of life he's going to be given.
The next thing we learn about him is that he is a millionaire. But instead of giving away his money, he hides it under his floorboards. This proves that he isn't able to feel compassion even for people who are suffering financially.
He realizes he must change. These encounters cause him to question if his life has been worthwhile and if he has earned forgiveness from God.
His visit from Jacob Marley causes Scrooge to realize that he must change his ways or suffer eternal punishment. Marley shows him a glimpse of his future corpse, which makes Scrooge realize that he needs to repent now. After this experience, Scrooge decides to donate his money to poor people and stop being greedy.
This lesson is important because it teaches us that our fate is in our hands. We can choose what path we will follow so far as it does not violate any laws. However, some things are beyond our control such as our birth rank, gender, or family history.
However, we can always change ourselves for the better. If you want to learn more about this topic, I recommend reading A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. It's one of my favorite novels of all time and one of the most popular holiday stories ever written!
