A Christmas Carol is one of the most beloved and heart-warming Christmas tales of all time. Ebenezer Scrooge is a greedy and unsympathetic man who has no time for Christmas. "If I could work my will," said Scrooge indignantly, "Every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!" Yet everything changes when his former partner, Jacob Marley, returns from the dead to haunt him on Christmas Eve. Soon he has to face the Christmases of his past, present and future in a journey to become a better person.
