Ebenezer Scrooge is not a fan of Christmas, not one bit. He relentlessly "Bah, Humbugs" every glimmer of holiday happiness. Cheer is costly and good-will is bad for business. This Christmas, however, things are going to be a little different. Ebenezer experiences a change of heart while traveling through his past, present and future on Christmas Eve. Scrooge''s miraculous transformation opens his eyes and his heart to the things that are truly important.
Ever since its publication in 1843, Charles Dickens'' A Christmas Carol has come to embody everything that is good and right about the human spirit not only during the holidays, but all throughout the year. Originally written in rebuttal of the squalid working conditions of child laborers in Industrial Age England, A Christmas Carol remains a timeless tale of redemption, hope, and love.
