A Christmas Carol
By: Josie Shoenhair
The ghost of Christmas Past took scrooge back to when he was a boy sitting in the boarding school all along on Christmas. He watches the boy version of him self and it hurts him a little bit. They move to a couple years later next, His little sister come to get him and they go home to Christmas together. He took him back to the boarding school to show where his deep hatred of Christmas came from I think. Next they went to the Fezzywigs place where he interned. The ghost takes him there to show him how much fun he had on the holidays and he takes him there becuase it is the place he met his fiancee.The ghost then shows him the conversation when he and his fiancee break up and go their separate ways to show him how much the money actually hurt him. The ghost then shows him his Ex-Fiancee and her family talking about Scrooge and laughing about it, and it makes him re-think everything he did in the past a little bit.
The ghost of Christmas future shows scrooge the old men in the town square laughing about his death. He shows him this so Scrooge can know that no one really misses him honestly. Next he shows him the people that work for him stealing his things right after he dies and all going to the same pawn shop, unknowingly, and pawing off his stuff while they laugh about his death. Then comes the dead body under the curtain and that's when he is face to face with his death and it becomes real for him to see how alone he actually is.
The moral of the story is that in life it's not all about money. It's about the people you have in your life and how you live your life that really matters.
