A story by Charles Dickens (1812-1870)
Ebenezer Scrooge is a money lender. He is very rich but he is also very mean. He has no friends, he pays his employee, Bob Cratchit, a very low wage. He doesn't believe in celebrating Christmas. His nephew, Fred, invites him for Christmas dinner but he refuses.
One Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by three ghosts. The ghosts show him his life in the past, the present and the future.
