Already, the poor townsfolk are elevated above Scrooge in moral standing – he is a caricature of a lonely miser. He gave the cap a parting squeeze, in which his hand relaxed; and had barely time to reel to bed, before he sank into a heavy sleep . Many thousands are in want of common necessaries; hundreds of thousands are in want of common comforts, sir. It suggests that even though cruelty seems to reign, the goodness embodied by the Christmas message can always find a way through, through the fog, through the keyhole.

He has the power to render us happy or unhappy; to make our service light or burdensome; a pleasure or a toil. With an ill-will Scrooge dismounted from his stool, and tacitly admitted the fact to the expectant clerk in the Tank, who instantly snuffed his candle out, and put on his hat. It opened before them, and disclosed a long, bare, melancholy room, made barer still by lines of plain deal forms and desks.While it reflects how many people think about Christmas, it is also a key source for popular Christmas traditions.

She clapped her hands and laughed, and tried to touch his head; but being too little, laughed again, and stood on tiptoe to embrace him. a christmas carol charles dickenssummary, study guide, character list, themes etc are added as annotations. But I am sure I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round -- apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that -- as a good time; a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time: the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys.

If they would rather die," said Scrooge, "they had better do it, and decrease the surplus population. As the words were spoken, they passed through the wall, and stood upon an open country road, with fields on either hand. In the first stave, the miser Scrooge is introduced as well as his merry nephew and his poor clerk Bob Cratchit.

Scrooge is not just a grumpy old man – he is a “squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, covetous old sinner”. Wherefore the clerk put on his white comforter , and tried to warm himself at the candle; in which effort, not being a man of a strong imagination, he failed.

Oysters are hard to open - suggest Scrooge does not like opening up to people and keeps to himself, antisocial. The curtains of his bed were drawn aside; and Scrooge, starting up into a half-recumbent attitude, found himself face to face with the unearthly visitor who drew them: as close to it as I am now to you, and I am standing in the spirit at your elbow. stiffened his gait; made his eyes red, his thin lips blue and spoke out shrewdly in his grating voice.

When it had said these words, the spectre took its wrapper from the table, and bound it round its head, as before. The treatment of the poor and the ability of a selfish man to redeem himself by transforming into a more sympathetic character are the key themes of the story. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!
