Mr. Scrooge is a squeezing, wrenching, grasping, scraping, clutching, miserable old man. Nobody stops him in the street to say a cheery hello; nobody would dare ask him for a favor. And no one had better be so foolish as to wish him a "Merry Christmas!" Scrooge doesn't believe in Christmas, charity, kindness—or ghosts. But one cold Christmas Eve, Scrooge receives some unusual visitors who show him just how very mistaken he's been.
