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. One day two portly men came into his office and asked him if he could donate some money for poor people… well he did not accept and he said that most of that poor people should die or go to prison and work in some workhouses. He in the movie was a very, very bad man and three ghosts of Christmas showed him to be nice with people, friends, family etc… Finally he changed and have a lot of fun with his family that they invited him for a dinner, with poor people and with his nephew Bob Cratchit.
After Fred leaves, a pair of charity workers (labelled as “Portly Gentlemen” in the text”) enters the counting house to ask Scrooge for a donation for the poor. Scrooge replies that prisons and workhouses are the only charities he supports, in which he follows up with ``If they would rather die ... they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population.” and the charity workers leave empty-handed. Scrooge then complains about Bob wanting a day off for Christmas day. "What good is Christmas ... that it should shut down business?" Scrooge eventually agrees to give Bob a day off but tells him that he must arrive at the office early the next day.
When Scrooge is shown his younger self alone in his classroom on Christmas, he regrets chasing a Christmas caroler away from his door. The Spirit skips ahead a few years to show him a happier time. His sweet little sister Fan arrives to take him home, and this is his first Christmas in a long time that is spent with family. Unfortunately, Scrooge doesn’t see it that way; seeing this scene makes him “uneasy in his mind” as he thinks about the way he treats his nephew Fred. Instead of treating him like his only family member, Scrooge denies invitations to Christmas dinner every year and is rude whenever Fred speaks to him.
A miserable, unhappy old man named Ebenezer Scrooge sits in his house being the mean-spirited man he is on the eve of Christmas. His nephew, as every year, invites him to a Christmas party but he always gets the same response. Scrooge spits out an angry and rage of his famous words, “Bah! Humbug!” The following night, Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his dead partner, Jacob Marley. Marley wants to save him from sharing the same fate as himself.
It is Christmas Eve, and as Scrooge is closing his office his nephew comes in to wish him a Merry Christmas. Scrooge, being as “cold” as he is, just thinks that Christmas is a time where people spend money. Scrooge lives alone. His business partner, Jacob Marley has been dead for seven years. Scrooge prepares for bed and all of the unused bells in his house start to ring.
In the third book of the Harry Potter series, it starts on Harry’s birthday with Harry lying in his room receiving an owl post from his friends. The next morning Harry hears about a man named Sirius Black and that he escaped from a prison. While this goes on, Aunt Marge comes to visit the Dursleys. Harry accidentally causes his aunt to inflate and then runs away to the Knight Bus. But before he gets on the bus Harry sees a large, black dog.
In Israel Horovitz’s stage production of “A Christmas Carol: Scrooge and Marley”, the spirit of the characters develops into an adventurous journey. The setting is Christmas Eve and a poor man is working diligently while the owner, Ebenezer Scrooge, refuses to let him have Christmas Day off. Later that night at Scrooge's house, his old, dead, partner in business, Marley, visits him and tells him to change his ways and that three ghosts will come to haunt him: The Ghost of Christmas Past, The Ghost of Christmas Present, and The Ghost of Christmas Future. They all show him scenes in which Scrooge realizes his guilt and eventually make Christmas a better time for everyone he originally affected. Scrooge changes from a cold-hearted miser, to a merry, warm-hearted person through realizing his guilt.
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.
While this invitation produced anxiety for every person that attended this meal, the toll that it took on my nephew was rather difficult to watch. His father chose to attend the day before Thanksgiving; but a half-hour before the scheduled 2 p.m. time for dinner, he let his son know that his girlfriend and her children had decided to come as well. While the adults scrambled to add additional seating, my nephew excitedly stood outside on the porch anticipating his guests’ arrival. An hour later, this little boy dejectedly wondered whether his father had changed his mind. When his guests finally arrived, we all ate an awkward, cold dinner, and my ex-brother-in-law whisked them all (including my nephew) away to his family’s Thanksgiving meal, which meant that my disappointed nephew never got to share the chocolate pie that he had helped make.
The chapter we chose to write about was 22, 'Grieving' because it was very moving. In this chapter William tries to bottle up his feelings about Zach's death and Geoffrey seems to understand Will's grief. It is also William's first Christmas with Mr Tom, so they make homemade toys for incoming evacuees, due to increased bomb raids in London. Will also learns from Geoffrey that 'he can live without Zach, even though he still misses him’ as Will discovers that Geoffrey lost a friend while fighting in the war and learns to overcome his grief. ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ by Michelle Magorian is about a small boy named William Beech, who is evacuated from London during WW2.
