This Christmas classic was first publishes in 1843. It tells the story of mean and stingy Ebernezer Scrooge,  who has no place in his life for kindness, compassion, charity or benevolence  – Bah Humbug!

His opinion is transformed one Christmas Eve  after a visit from his old business partner Jacob Marley’s ghost, who tells him to change his ways or he will continue to lead a miserable existence! Scrooge is then visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet to come, who show him how he and his life has and will be affected.

Scrooge is affected by what he has seen and changes his ways to embody the spirit of Christmas, treating his fellow men with kindness, generosity and compassion.
