A Christmas Carol (film Tie-in)
'Merry Christmas! . . . every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' on his lips, should be boiled with his own pudding'
It is the twenty fourth of December. Mean old Ebenezer Scrooge sits in his freezing cold office shouting 'Bah! Humbug!' at anyone who dares wish him a Merry Christmas.
But that night the miser has a terrifying visitor. Marley, his dead business partner who must wander the earth forever to pay for his sins, comes with a warning. Scrooge will be haunted by three more spirits.
The ghosts of Christmas past, present and future arrive to show Scrooge the hardship he has caused. Is he doomed to the same fate as Marley? Or can he mend his ways and learn to celebrate the true meaning of Christmas?
