The Story(in case you have been living in a cave)
"Bah, Humbug" says Scrooge(that same miserly character depicted in Dicken's "Christmas Carol") to ail those joyous, happy moments and thoughts and people that he comes across in his daily life. He really can't abide anyone enjoying themselves, or being happy, or especially celebrating the Christmas season. He's also mean and miserly, underpays his staff and is a "pinchpenny squeezer". He is overbearing towards his employees, Thomas, Richard, Harold and Bob(the same Cratchit as in Dicken's story). He is just the same toward his nephew, Fred, who tries to get him to "see the light" (What does Christmas mean to you?). Scrooge says it's all " a waste of time!". Scrooge is visited by the ghost of his old business partner Jacob Marley, who tells him that he should expect the worst (a cloak of chain!" if he doesn't change his ways. With the help of three more spirits(Ghosts of Christmas Past, Christmas Present and Christmas Future), Scrooge examines his life and future and is persuaded to change his ways - much to the amazement of all who know him!
