Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas to one and all.

Give a penny for the poor, governor.

Penny for the poor.

My partner, Jacob Marley,

dead seven years today.

He was a good one.

He robbed from the widows

and swindled the poor.

In his will, he left me enough money

to pay for his tombstone.

And I had him buried at sea.

Good morning, Mr. Scrooge.

Cratchit, what are you doing

with that piece of coal?

I was just trying to thaw out the ink.

You used a piece last week.

Now, get on with your work, Cratchit.

Speaking of work, Mr. Scrooge,

tomorrow is Christmas,

and I was wondering

if I could have half a day off.

Christmas, huh?

I suppose so.

But I'll dock you half a day's pay.

Now, let's see,

I pay you two shillings a day.

Two shillings and a halfpenny, sir?

Oh, yes. I gave you that raise

three years ago.

Yes, sir,

when I started doing your laundry.

All right, Cratchit,

get busy while I go over my books.

Oh, and here.

Here's another bundle of shirts for you.

Yes, sir.

Let's see now, 50 pounds,

10 shillings from McDuff.

Plus his 80 percent interest

compounded daily.

Money, money, money.

Merry Christmas.

And a merry Christmas to you,

Master Fred.

Bah, humbug.

Merry Christmas, Uncle Scrooge.

What's so merry about it?

I'll tell you what Christmas is,

it's just another workday.

And any jackanapes who thinks else

should be boiled in his own pudding.

But, sir, Christmas is a time for giving.

A time to be with one's family.

I say, bah, humbug.

I don't care. I say, merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas.

Well said, Master Fred.

Cratchit, what are you doing?

I was just trying

to keep my hands warm, sir.

And what are you doing here, nephew?

I've come to give you a wreath

and invite you to Christmas dinner.

Well, I suppose you're going

to have plump goose

- with chestnut dressing.

- Yup.

And will you have plum pudding

and lemon sauce?

Yeah. Boy, oh, boy.

And candied fruits

with spiced sugar cakes?

Yeah. Will you come?

Are you daft, man?

You know I can't eat that stuff.

Here's your wreath back.

Now out, out, out.

Bah, humbug.

Merry Christmas.

And a "bah, humbug" to you.

That Fred, always so full of kindness.

Aye, he always was a little peculiar.

And stubborn.

Customers. I'll handle this, Cratchit.

Yes, what can I do

for you two gentlemen?

Sir, we are soliciting funds

for the indigent and destitute.

For the what?

We're collecting for the poor.

Well, you realise

if you give money to the poor,

they won't be poor anymore, will they?

- Well...

- And if they're not poor anymore,

then you won't have to raise money

for them anymore.

Well, I suppose...

And if you don't have to raise money

for them anymore,

then you would be out of a job.

Oh, please, gentlemen,

don't ask me to put you out of a job.

- Not on Christmas Eve.

- We wouldn't do that, Mr. Scrooge.

Well, then, I suggest

you give this to the poor and begone.

What's this world coming to, Cratchit?

You work all your life to get money,

and people want you to give it away.

Two minutes fast.

Well, never mind those two minutes.

You may go now.

Oh, thank you, sir. You're so kind.

Never mind the mushy stuff. Just go.

But be here all the earlier the next day.

I will. I will, sir. And a "bah humbug..."

I mean, a merry Christmas to you, sir.

Scrooge.

Jacob Marley?

No, that can't be.

Gosh.

Ebenezer Scrooge.

Go away.

Ebenezer Scrooge...

Gosh, kind of slippery.

Scrooge, don't you recognise me?

I was your partner, Jacob Marley.

Marley, it is you.

Ebenezer, remember when I was alive,

I robbed the widows

Charles Dickens

Charles John Huffam Dickens (; 7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's best-known fictional characters and is regarded by many as the greatest novelist of the Victorian era. His works enjoyed unprecedented popularity during his lifetime, and by the 20th century critics and scholars had recognised him as a literary genius. His novels and short stories are still widely read today.Born in Portsmouth, Dickens left school to work in a factory when his father was incarcerated in a debtors' prison. Despite his lack of formal education, he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels, five novellas, hundreds of short stories and non-fiction articles, lectured and performed readings extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children's rights, education, and other social reforms. Dickens's literary success began with the 1836 serial publication of The Pickwick Papers. Within a few years he had become an international literary celebrity, famous for his humour, satire, and keen observation of character and society. His novels, most published in monthly or weekly instalments, pioneered the serial publication of narrative fiction, which became the dominant Victorian mode for novel publication. Cliffhanger endings in his serial publications kept readers in suspense. The instalment format allowed Dickens to evaluate his audience's reaction, and he often modified his plot and character development based on such feedback. For example, when his wife's chiropodist expressed distress at the way Miss Mowcher in David Copperfield seemed to reflect her disabilities, Dickens improved the character with positive features. His plots were carefully constructed, and he often wove elements from topical events into his narratives. Masses of the illiterate poor chipped in ha'pennies to have each new monthly episode read to them, opening up and inspiring a new class of readers.Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age. His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre. Oliver Twist and Great Expectations are also frequently adapted, and, like many of his novels, evoke images of early Victorian London. His 1859 novel, A Tale of Two Cities, set in London and Paris, is his best-known work of historical fiction. Dickens has been praised by fellow writers—from Leo Tolstoy to George Orwell, G. K. Chesterton and Tom Wolfe —for his realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism. On the other hand, Oscar Wilde, Henry James, and Virginia Woolf complained of a lack of psychological depth, loose writing, and a vein of saccharine sentimentalism. The term Dickensian is used to describe something that is reminiscent of Dickens and his writings, such as poor social conditions or comically repulsive characters. more…
