I also liked the part when the ghost of Christmas present showed the meaning of ignorance and want of the poor people that worked in workhouses and poor people. The past I also liked was of the ghost of Christmas future because it showed to him that if he do not change he would die, the same day that Mr. Scrooge hate that day and that if he did not helped his jobs assistant his child that was Tiny Tim would die because that family did not have the enough money to buy medicine to Tiny Tim. Tiny Tim had a problem with his leg. I did not like the part when Scrooge said to he two portly men that he would not give them donations to the poor people and instead of it he said that poor people would work in workhouses, go to prison and die. And now I would describe each of the characters of A Christmas Carol movie… Ebenezer Scrooge was a man that did not care about others.
Scrooge was afraid that would die and became a miserable ghost like his friend, Marley, and was sad to see Tinny Tim dead. So, Scrooge decided to change, in the end of the novella Scrooge turned out to become a person who enjoyed Christmas as he was before. In conclusion, every ghost has affected Scrooge in different ways to change his behavior even though the Ghost of Christmas Future is the most influence one on him. But if he wasn’t reminded about his past by the Ghost of Christmas Past and wasn’t invited to see the present that he didn’t knew by the Ghost of Christmas Present, he may not had

Introduction A Christmas Carol is a written in December 1845 by Charles Dickens. This novel was based on the industrial revolution. Dickens shows Scrooge’s transformation going through both love and grief. The Ghost of Christmas past reminded Scrooge of a sense of festivity by showing him his old headmaster Fezziwig; the love in Bob Cratchit’s family made Scrooge analyze his life and it gave him grief; Scrooge had to experience grief, being a sullen old man, just experiencing love wouldn’t be as effective. He also had to experience love to revive his human feeling, his sense of care and empathy.
Scrooge denies and asks if the prisons and workhouses are full, and refuses to give anything. Later on Christmas Eve, three spirits sent by Marley attempt to change Scrooge’s ways. The first ghost, the Ghost of Christmas Past, shows him how miserable he was as a child and how he became a grumpy old man. The reason he is the way his is today is his lost love left him for him loving money more than lovingnher. “Another Idol has displaced me.
Though there are many elements that led to Charles Dickens writing a Christmas Carol, for example the Ragged Schools, the Manchester athenaeum and Dickens' first-hand experiences with industrialism and prison on his recent American tour, I feel that the single most important and influential factor lay in Dickens observations of the suffering, deep in the heart of London's poor, that children were being seduced to. It has been said by many at the time that sex was the only affordable pleasure for the poor, the result of course was thousands of children living in unimaginable poverty, filth and disease. Dickens' felt that the only answer to breaking the endless cycle of poverty was education and so he became interested in Ragged Schools. Ragged schools were free to attend and run through charity, this gave even the poorest of children a glimpse of hope to break the cycle. Despite the availability of these schools, a lot of poor children did not benefit due to the demand for child labour and apathy of parent... ... middle of paper ... ...ay's times as it brings to light all the joys and happiness that everyone likes to feel at Christmas.
“I help support the prisons and the workhouses—they cost enough—and those who are badly off must go there” (7). Scrooge prefers to support workhouses rather than help people and give money to those around him. When people came to ask for charity, Scrooge “wish to be left alone” (7). Without Marley, money is all he has. After the spirits visit Scrooge, he realizes how sad and lonely his life really is.
He was terrified and his dad would never answer his questions. Charlie remembered his childhood and through his memories, he felt guilty for hurting his family.

Prior to Paul’s hiring, there was a family like atmosphere with great employee-management relations, and little direct supervision needed. In order to improve the production and efficiency of his department, Paul relegated the responsibility of improving production and efficiency to the supervisors. If they could not do this then they would be fired, or their bonuses withheld. As a result, the supervisors got labeled as the “bad guys” because of the pressure they were forced to put on the production employees to change their ways. However, this pressure was ineffective and only caused relations between them to worsen.
As A Christmas Carol starts, Scrooge is the cruel old man who is too cheap to do anything has needed to be done or care about anyone in need around him. Fred is a relative to Scrooge and tries to encourage his uncle during Christmas to get into spirit, which is almost impossible for him to do so (“A Christmas Carol” 66). On Christmas eve Scrooge was visited by three ghosts, the ghost of the past, present, and future. They are here to warn him that he must change(“A Christmas Carol” 67). He soon realizes how selfish he is and wants a second chance.
