Let’s have different Christmas this time. We can read with our children beautiful books with timeless value, we can watch movies with Christmas spirit issues and the true meaning we have to keep. One of these stories is the story of Scrooge. We have all heard the phrase “stingy like Scrooge,” but how many of us know the true story behind it? A Christmas instructive story.

Instructive story

England, Christmas 1843. Ebenezer Scrooge is an old-fashioned, wily old man. Dickens’ rich plum, created by Dickens, was able to live in the spirit of Christmas only in the last years of his life. To understand all the importance of compassion, love and generosity. He spends all hours of the day in his office with his assistant, who forces him to work endless hours with less money.

He hates Christmas and everyone who enjoys these days. The ghost of his dead partner, Jacob Marley, who was just as lame and miserable as him, visits him in his sleep. He will warn him to look at things differently. Then the three ghosts of Christmas visit him. The ghosts of past, present and future, pointing to his mistakes and helping him repent and change character. His experience literally transforms him into the greatest benefactor of his city.

Timeless value

Charles Dickens’ book A Christmas Carol was first published in 1834 and for the first time was a huge success. Its timeless value is also evidenced by the many transfers to cinema, television, theater and opera. Also, Scrooge Mac Duck, Walt Disney’s skittish hero, is inspired by Ebenezer Scrooge.

I would say that the meaning of Christmas, the sincere love and selfless help we can give our fellow man, derives from this story. So let’s teach it to our children.
