First published in 1843, Charles Dickens created this Victorian classic drawing on observations of the lives and dire straits of the poorest people living in London at the time. Ebenezer the miser has closed his heart to memories he would rather forget. With Christmas Spirit disrupting his normal business routine, and visitations from his deceased business partner Jacob Marley, Ebenezer is faced with his past, and the decisions he has made on a lonely life’s quest, that of satisfying his greed.
“If I had my way, every idiot who goes around with Merry Christmas on his lips would be boiled with his own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. Merry Christmas? Bah humbug!”
