A Christmas Carol​

Once upon a time, one snowy winter day, it was Christmas Eve. Meanie old Ebenezer Scrooge was in his freezing cold office.

Young Bob Cratchit worked long hours there for very little pay.

Scrooge working on computer surrounded by Bob Crachit and lots of paperwork

Scrooge said, ‘I suppose you will want the day off tomorrow.’

‘Yes, please sir, it’s Christmas Day,’ said Bob.

‘Bah, humbug! That means I will be paying you even though you won’t be at work!’ said Scrooge, ‘very well, you may take the afternoon off tomorrow, but you must start work three hours earlier to make up.’

As Scrooge left the office that evening there were two people collecting money for the poor.

‘Give my money away?’ said meanie old Scrooge, ‘bah!’

That night Scrooge went to bed and fell fast asleep.

Suddenly, he heard a strange voice.

‘I am the Ghost of Christmas Past. Come with me,’ said the voice.
Then Scrooge seemed to go back in time. He saw himself as a boy playing with other children. They were all laughing and running around a Christmas tree.
