    A Christmas Carol_ppt A Christmas Carol_ppt Presentation Transcript

    • By Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol
      • Scrooge was somebody who valued money not family and love
      • He treated people with disrespect and didn’t care for others, especially the poor and certainly wouldn’t give money to carol singers at Christmas time
    • “ OH! But he was a tight-fisted hand at the grindstone, was Scrooge! A squeezing, wrenching, grasping, clutching, covetous old sinner! The cold within him froze his old features, nipped his pointy nose, shrivelled his cheek, stiffened his gait; made his eyes red, his thin lips blue.” EBENEZER SCROOGE
      • Bob Cratchit was Scrooge’s clerk – a good man
      • Scrooge paid him a very low wage
      • His wage wasn’t really enough to properly feed his big family
      • Bob’s youngest child Tiny Tim was a cripple who was frail and light
    • The Visits of the Ghosts
      • Scrooge was haunted by Jacob Marley (pictured), his deceased business partner
      • The ghost warned him he would be visited by another three spirits
      • The first was the Ghost of Christmas Past
      • Scrooge was reminded of what he might have had
      • A family, good times
    • THE GHOST OF CHRISTMAS PRESENT
      • They visit the Cratchit family to show that you can be happy and poor
      • Makes Scrooge feel guilty for paying him poorly
      • They meet Ignorance and Want – a boy and girl symbolising greed and poverty in the cities
      • People did not have many kind words to say about Scrooge
    • The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come
      • Scrooge has died a lonely, miserable man and buried in a dark, gloomy, graveyard
      • Tiny Tim has also died
      • Scrooge says: “I will honour Christmas in my heart, try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, Present and the Future. The spirits of all three will strive within me.”
    • Conclusion
      • Scrooge changes his ways!
      • Tiny Tim lives!
      • Everybody is amazed at Scrooge’s transformation!
      • Scrooge was true to his word – He spread happiness not only at Christmas but all year round!
