“A Christmas Carol” by Charles Dickens
This timeless Christmas classic of profound insights, redemption and spiritual reincarnation begins with the introduction of the nagging and curmudgeonly old man – Ebenezer Scrooge. The fact that it’s Christmas Eve doesn’t bother him too much, except for the annoyance and inconvenience of having to deal with more people than normal. As usual he is working late in his suite, while keeping a close eye on his clerk Bob Cratchit. Bob is shivering in what appears more like a cell than an actual work place, stamping letters in the cold, waiting to finally join his family for the Christmas dinner. During the evening Scrooge gets a couple of guests but he is equally bitter and mean to all of them. Even to his own nephew – Fred, who came to wish him a Merry Christmas and to invite him over to a Christmas celebration. After giving them the cold shoulder, he goes back home to his unwelcoming and lonely apartment. There however he will be bothered once more, but this time by a chilling and frightening visitor – the tormented ghost of his dead associate. Looking miserable and haggard, with heavy chains around his feet, he comes to Scrooge to tell him about his unfortunate faith and to give him a grim warning. His living days of greed and selfishness have doomed his soul to wander the earth enchained and restless. Same faith threatens Scrooge and his only chance of salvation is to take on a journey with the ghosts of the past, present and future Christmas and to open his heart for feelings and emotions that his lust for money and wealth has robbed from him a long time ago.
