|Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol|
If you have never seen any version of A Christmas Carol then you should definitely check it out, whether it is the newest version of A Christmas Carol with Jim Carrey (2009), The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992), or one of my favorites Scrooged (1988). It's not too late, rent it, watch it, and let it touch your soul.
The story follows Ebeneezer Scrooge, a filthy rich old man who has made his money by greed. He treats his employee, Bob Cratchit horribly. Scrooge, while he never married, his only remaining relative is his nephew. In the opening sequence you will get the picture of how Scrooge alienates himself and doesn't want to be bothered by people. Until... he's visited Christmas Eve night by his old business partner, Jacob Marley. Marley's ghost presents himself as a warning to Scrooge. But, Scrooge scoffs at Marley and does not heed his warnings. This is when Marley tells Scrooge that he will be visited by three spirits. Those spirits are Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Future.
Now that we've had the refresher - back to what I was originally contemplating: What would the spirits show me?
