A Christmas Carol mainly follows a story of a mean-spirited and selfish old man named Ebenezer Scrooge, who hates Christmas. While he is sitting in his counting house on a cold Christmas Eve alone, the ghost of his former business partner Jacob Marley comes by and visits him, subsequently followed by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. They all point out Ebenezer Scrooge’s mistakes. After their visits, Scrooge is scared and later transformed into a kinder, gentler man.
