A Christmas Carol
Stave 2: The Ghost of Christmas Past
The spirit took Scrooge to the school he attended as a child to show him he spent many Christmas' alone. He takes Scrooge to Fezziwig's house to show him that not all Christmas memories are bad ones. The spirit also takes Scrooge to where his fiancé broke the engagement with him to show him how early greed had gotten the better of him.
Stave 3: The Ghost of Christmas Present
This spirit takes Scrooge to Bob Cratchit's house. Here he sees the meager feast the family has, and he seen Tiny Tim. The sprit takes Scrooge here to show him the Cratchit's living conditions under the salary that Bob earns. The spirit next takes Scrooge to his nephews Christmas party to show Scrooge what he's been missing out on all these years. Scrooge ends up having a great time at the party.
Stave 4: The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come
The third spirit takes Scrooge to a time in the future where they see people talking about a business man who had died. They see workers of that man take his personal belongings to a pawn shop to sell them for money. The spirit shows Scrooge these events because it is obvious that this man was not liked very well. Later on Scrooge finds out that he is the business man that nobody seems to care about. The ghost also takes him to the Cratchit house where we see that the meager amount of money they earned was not enough to keep Tiny Tim around.
Stave 5: The Moral of the Story
I believe that the moral of the story is to put others first. When people say, "don't be a Scrooge," they are saying don't let greed get the best of you, think of others. The lessons in this story should not only be remembered at Christmas time, but every day.
