A Christmas Carol

By:Charles Dickens

MARLEYS GHOST

Scrooges old friend and partner came to see him one Christmas Eve. Marleys mouth had a folded kerchief wrapped around his head and chin. The kerchief was there to keep his moth from hanging open. Back then the dead had to have kerchiefs around there mouths and chins to keep them from coming open while people were viewing them in their casket. Marleys Ghost also had chains around him. The chains represent his spirit staying on earth until he pays all his debts.

The Ghost Of Christmas Past

This is the Ghost of Christmas Past. It is VERY old. Yet it has a face without any wrinkles at all. It holds a holly leaf. The holly represents the season, winter, Christmas! The light coming out of its head represents memories, Scrooges memories. It holds a hat. When put on its head the memories will disappear. The dress represents its youthfulness. This Spirit takes Scrooge to see his past. What does Scrooge see?

The Ghost Of Christmas Present

This is the second of the three spirits. He takes Scrooge to see all the things that will happen in the Present! He takes him to see Bob Cratchits house, where Tiny Tim (Bobs son) is doing okay. All around him lays turkeys, geese, game brawn, great joints of meat, suckling pigs, long wreaths of sausages, mince pies, plum puddings, barrels of oysters, red hot chestnuts, cherry-cheeked apples, juicy oranges, luscious pears, immense twelfth-cakes, and great bowls of punch.

The Ghost Of Christmas Yet To Come

The last of the three spirits. It was shrouded in a deep black garment, which concealed its head, its face, its form, and left nothing of it visible save one outstretched hand. The spirit neither spoke nor moved. This Ghost shows Scrooge his soon to be grave. He also shows him one other grave! Whos grave did the Ghost show Scrooge?

~Christmas Day~
This is Christmas Day where Scrooge lives. As u see Scrooge is being nice. He has bought a BIG turkey for the Cratchets. He gave Bob the day off. And gave him a raise!
