On Christmas Eve Scrooge sits in his counting-house with not a kind word for a soul, just wanting to be left alone until the 'humbug' of Christmas is over. But four ghostly visitors - his partner Marley, followed by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Yet to Come - show him the error of his ways, and by the time Christmas Day dawns, Scrooge is ready to enjoy it!

The story sings from end to end like a happy man going home.... It is lyric and exclamatory, from the first exclamatory words of it. It is strictly a Christmas Carol. --G.K. ChesteronFrom the Publisher:
