About a Christmas Carol

A Christmas Carol is a play about a mean-spirited and selfish old man, Ebenezer Scrooge, who hates Christmas. One cold Christmas Eve, Scrooge is unkind to the people who work for him, then refuses to give to charity, and then is rude to his nephew when he invites him to spend Christmas with him.

It is a cautionary tale that warns the reader about the dangers of misbehaving. Although Scrooge is visited or ''haunted'' by four spirits, the spirits haunt Scrooge not simply to scare him but to warn him about the consequences of his actions so that he will be inspired to change.
